I'm sure I've already lost a lot of those gains from being out of lifting for almost 2 months. Shifting gears to low weight and more reps just to maintain.

All bloodwork came back in the norms with exception of slighlty elevated blood sugar.

My DH also had the very(!) frequent urination - for him that stopped after they stopped the steroids.
I hope you will not be affected, get hyperglycemia from the steroids, like my husband. It sounds as you are feeling fine/OK so far
