The doctor called this morning with my MRI results. He said my hip bone looks the same, or maybe a bit better compared to my last scan. I do definitely have swelling in the muscles around my hip which is causing my pain. He recommended steroids to decrease the swelling. I already get a small dose of steroids (Decadron 10mg) with my chemo infusions, so he suggested I wait until after next week’s infusion, then start taking Prednisone (in pill form) the following day for a few days. If the steroids don’t work, I may just need to stick it out until the swelling goes down on its own. So watch out for my ‘roid rage next week!
