Effect of Prednisone on Pancreas following Distal Pancreatectomy
Hello – I had a distal pancreatectomy in 2011 (2/3 removed) along with a splenectomy. Due to nerve inflammation and osteoarthritis in my neck, my doctor is recommending a ten day prednisone pack (40-60 mg daily). Has anyone had any experience taking prednisone following a pancreatectomy and splenectomy? Is 40-60mg daily a safe dose for the pancreas?
