Subject: Lupron vs Predisone
Message-ID: <>

Our little Tweaky had his second adrenal (right) removed on Thursday and I'm
wondering what information everyone has about giving Predisone instead of
Lupron? I searched the FHL and didn't find any real information on whether
Predisone is as good as Lupron since my little guy now has no Adrenal glands at

The vet said the right Adrenal Gland was HUGE!! It had not wrapped around
the Vena Cava, but instead had pushed it off to the side.

Was Tweaky just lucky or is this common? He had been displaying symptoms of
being adrenal again for about 3 or 4 months. His left Adrenal Gland was
removed on August 27, 2003.

UPDATE: Tweaky is home now, but not eating very much, he seems to be in
quite a bit of pain, and its difficult to get him to eat any thing. Please
remember him in your prayers, and I'll keep everyone posted.
