I called Huntsman Clinic first thing this morning and they had me bring him right in. Just how we wanted to spend the holiday. 4 hours at Huntsman. There was only one doctor covering all the patients at Huntsman. Nice.
His opinion is that it is probably a little GVHD flare-up. That happens as you taper the steroids. Solution - increase the steroid dose. Not by too much right now but we'll see.
It is also common as you come off the steroids that you have inflammation problems. When you are on steroids it is suppressing inflammation and when you taper down the immune system can kick into gear.
I think that is all I know.
