We got a call this morning about "unexpected resuts" on Carter's lumbar x-rays. Something showed up in the upper right abdominal quadrant and they are saying it's possible gallstones. Have any of your boys had issues with gallstones? I'm trying to look them up now and see if they are a possible risk of steroids.. He's been on Deflaz since 9/2008.

We will be in Cincinnati next week, but he'll be getting an abdominal ultrasound first thing Monday the 20th to get a better look.


Any experience is appreciated!


Thank you,

Rhiannon, sorry you guys are going thru more than most. I was on prednisone for 12 years. and about three years in I had to have my gallbladder out. I thought I had food poisoning. But after it is out I have to watch how much dairy I eat. (that might be age cause). I sure feel better with it out. I have a Polymyositis. You are going to be in great hand in Cincinnati.
