Renewed Hope for A Med Free Life!

After the results of my *knee x-ray came back with some bone erosion, I was feeling a little out of sorts. But, today I received results back on my hand and feet x-rays. There is still active rheumatoid arthritis present in both feet as there was when I was on all my medications, but the cysts are no longer there. Also, the osteoporosis that was showing up in my right hand and wrist while on medications did not show up on the x-rays. In fact, they didn't show any problems at all! I am truly amazed. There was concern when the osteoporosis showed up that the prednisone was the contributor and now that I have been off the long term stuff, it seems to have helped! Yay for all my efforts. They are helping. This is just the news I needed to hear. I am overjoyed!

*This was my first knee x-ray so we don't have anything to compare it to.
