Sterioids - on the up again

Matt's steroids are back on the up.  Last week he thought he could feel his deficits getting slightly worse - his right side that bit weaker and the aphasia not getting any better, despite doing lots of word games.

Options were another scan or increasing his steroids. Claire advised that we try increasing his steroids by 5 mg a day and see if that made any difference.  Matt's now on 15 mg in the morning and 10 mg in the evening of Prednisilone.  The good news is it's still nowhere near as strong as the Dexamethasone that he was on.

Matt's also starting to feel tired again as the Temodol builds up.  The longer lie ins and afternoon naps are back!
