Glad to hear that things are back to normal.
I had no idea that steroids could affect glucose levels for so long, I thought maybe for some reason you had to take it daily during infusion.

Glad to hear you were able to get #4. I had three week delay on 4, schedule for #5 on Thursday. One and done is my new motto. The dexi causes a big crash for me, fatigue, exhaustion. I struggle with anemia, holding my own, trying to avoid transfusion or IV iron as comes with steroids.
Best of luck.
