About This Group:

This group is intended as a meeting place and forum for those who have been diagnosed with granulomatous mastitis ('GM') or idiopathic granulomatous mastitis ('IGM'). I think one of the greatest challenges with this disease is its rarity and the associated lack of understanding in the medical community. But we can share here - and hopefully make the healing process a little easier for each other.

Prednisone 20mg

Hi all!
I have been diagnosed with IGM 3 months ago, after being taking antibiotics for 3 months! Biopsy was done and GM was the result (Docotors sent the Biopsy to Brasil to have a second opinion).
I have 3 excellent Doctors treating me: they put me under 20mg of prednisone for 2 weeks, then 15 mg, then 10 and then 5mg: at that point I have little nodules showing out of my breast and Doctors decided to go back to 20mg, I have been under that dosis for the last week.
With 20mg my breast is not better nor worse. They talked about a small sugery to help the prednisone, but I am not sure about it; as I read here that it doesn't help.
My question is; do you know if MG goes away with prednisone? Sometimes I think the prednisone dosis I am taking is really low compared with other woman in same situation.
The good part of all this prednisone thing is that my nipple is not longer inverted.
Thanks to all!
