What Are The Chances Of My Dad Having Cancer?

Postby Terrelle » Mon Sep 25, 2017 8:52 pm

He's been suffering bad muscle aches for the last three years. He had a syst in the top of his mouth.. and he took it out himself since the doctors wouldn't help him. His cortisol level is 1.1 which is way below the average even on prednazone which i heard is suppose to boost your cortisol levels. in addition he's lost almost 15 pounds while on prednazone. The doctors say that his thyroid glands and adrenal glands are shutting down as well.. give it to me straight.. what are the chances?

Why is a doctor keeping him on Prednisone? Usually, 10 days to two weeks is about the limit for Prednisone.

The outlook does not look all that rosey - - but you are asking people that are not qualified to make a diagnosis,.
