Hey all of you
I just wanted to open one discussion where people can ask and answer questions about edema. I had edema in my brain after my embolization in August. And I had edema in my brain after my procedure in January. And this time I really felt it!
The doctors put me on dexamethason at first and I had to build of. After that I became very sick and they put me on these meds again. When I build off the second time I became sick again. Finally they put me on prednison for 30 days.. and now I have to reduce from prednisone as well.
Does anyone here have experiences with dexamethason? I am just curious if it's used in other countries.
If you where using this medicine, what side-effects did you get?Dexamethason is an cortiscosteroid, just like prednisone, used against edema and it's inflammatory.
Other questions I have;
How long can edema hold on?
Is it conventional to have edema after embolization? ( I read a lot about edema after radiation )
For those who had edema: did you had the feeling that the pressure in your head replaced when you lay down, or bent over? And did it influenced your nightrest?
So this it what I would like to know.. Anyone could add other questions.
I hope someone who had edema could tell me about his/her experiences.
