Hello. I happen to have polymyositis with ILD. He is fortunate that he is able to wean down the prednisone. I hope he is doing well and his recovery goes smoothly. Are you aware of the Myositis web site? Be sure to check it out. If you sign up you can also get the newsletter which has current information. They list studies and information for other family members.
Should you have any questions, please write me. Though this is a rare disease, there is always more being learned about it. good luck to all of you. Karen
