I have been stepping down the dose to 1/4 of the original and now I can sleep hard for more than 7 hours! Feels so much better. Another week and I should be off the steroid. Should reduce the pudginess in my cheeks, too.
Go to the Orthopedist tomorrow to hopefully begin the rehab and start using my achilles tendon again and build up strength. Can't wait to get on a bike.
