Renal Wars: A New Chin

Getting tried of these Star Wars references yet?

Anyway, over the last two weeks I've noticed a double chin appearing. This is definitely the prednisone taking its toll on me and I can't wait to get off this stupid drug.

On Thursday I see my nephrologist for the first time in 4 weeks. This will be a major appointment as I submitted one of those 24-hour urine tests (a pretty convenient test if you take advantage of it) and the results of this test will give us an idea of if this medication is working. I'm not sure if he'll begin to ween me off the prednisone, that remains to be seen.

Thursday: A few days away...
