Hi there,

I am wondering if predisone can take a full year too leave your systom? My friend had breast cancer and had her left breast removed....she then had her chemo treatments/and predisone. It would have been a full year the end of oct 2003 since she received her last treatment and in about 7 weeks she has lost 40+pounds and for the last 5 or 6 weeks has a lump where her lymphnode is located on her neck around the jaw area, she went to the dr. and we are waiting for the results and she thinks this is what is causing her to loose so much weight ( the predisone is finally out of her systom)

I am really worried...she was on penicillin for 5 days over the holidays but the lump hasn't gone away , she said that it hurts to talk a bit as she thinks that it is pressing on a nerve or something.

Has anyone dropped that much weight in under 8 weeks a year after chemo etc treatments?

The dr. told her that he is very worried about her and that is too much weight to lose in such a short time and he ordered blood work and an emergency ultra sound for the lump on her throat.
