How did you feel once you started tapering the prednisone? I am in a world of pain all over and am wondering if this is the chemo or the pred - any thoughts?

    Hi Lisa! I didn't do the Stanford V, I did ABVD, but I was on prednisone for 2 years after chemo. I always felt like I had been hit by a truck when the prednisone was tapered. My whole body would ache and I would be exhausted. As soon as I would start to feel better, it would be time for another taper. I've been done with prednisone for 3 years now. Thank goodness. Hope you start to feel better.
