Do you think allergies are worse post-op?
I posted on Facebook that I’ve learned the hard way that I had an allergic reaction to blackberries. I’ve known about my strawberry allergy for decades and have avoided them mostly successfully. Apparently, they’re both in the same class of allergens 🙁
These blackberries were in an ice cream. And it was a good ice cream. Drat!
I have a lot more steroids to take for a few days. Oh, joy! And, another wean at the end.
Someone responded: “The further we get from Cushings, the more allergies surface. So glad you got help. Scary stuff!
I said: “I guess it’s because we don’t have so much cortisone already running in our bodies.”
Someone else asked: “Is that true? I seem to be allergic to pollen amd mold now?“
And I responded: “I don’t know but it makes sense now that I think of it. I’m definitely allergic to more things than I was Before Cushing’s“
So, in my informal poll – what do you think? Are your allergies worse or are you having new ones after Cushing’s?
