I also had to take the 5 days of Prednisone in early October and was not hungry at all. I kind of had to force myself to eat but I wasn't sick to my stomach or anything. I was so glad because I had read so much about the hunger and weight gain....guess we need to take our perks where we can get them. I just had my 2nd round of R CHOP yesterday 10-27 and so far so good. It was alot faster this time, about 4 hours. Had the Prednisone and do not feel hungry this morning at all. Hope it stays that way. Good luck. Mary

I almost forgot. On day 6 the first day of no prednisone a few hours after I would have taken it I suddenly became very very tired. I was at work and it felt like all the air was let out of my balloon. My MD had warned me about this so I didn't freak out. I was able to finish my day and was more tired the next day but that was it.

lol I can't afford any ounces either but did lose 4 pounds between treatments and they adjusted my prednisone dose down slightly this time. I'm still not hungry and have 2 days of prednisone left. I think it affects my tastbuds, nothing tastes right. I'll go for round 3 on 11/17.
