    Your case is extremely complicated and VERY serious if the degree of respiratory symptoms has reached a point where you are fainting. This is not a case that can be managed on your own or in the home environment and you need to see a specialist physician IMMEDIATELY. Speak to your family doctor for a referral. You do not give much details about your cancer of the large intestine, surgery, radiation therapy, chemotherapy, etc that you may have undergone at the time. It is possible that there is metastasis (distant spread) to other organs which does not bode well for your condition overall. There is no way to say for sure through an online platform such as this and you need to see a doctor. Various other Various investigation will need to be done immediately. It is possible that some of your symptoms may be associated the use of chronic drugs, particularly the steroids, but it is likely that there is much more going on that needs specialist attention. Please do not delay.
