Jerry Lewis

  1. Hello all, Happy Labor day.
    I had to work, of course!
    Anyway, I missed most of the Jerry Lewis MD telethon. Why is Jerry so puffy? He must be on prednisone or some other steroid, but what is the reason?

    And....Did you see him sing his famous "You'll never walk alone."? OMG, he looked sooooo sad

    I read... that he suffers from chronic back pain.. due to all those comedic falls he took in all his movies... and stage shows.... he's had surgeries for it.... and he has almost been crippled from all the pain.... he's also take tons of pain meds....

    I think I read it in People about 3-4 months ago.....

    Jerry was on one of those early morn. news shows here. He is on perdnisone. Also has a device implanted in his back for pain from previous falls. Claims the prednisone is for lung fibrosis.
