muscle atrophy

I have severe COPD and have been on long term prednisone for over a year. I have been weaning myself down and am at 4mg a day. My question is twofold: can I ever get back the extreme loss of muscle in my legs and arms? and I have heard that after long term use of Prednisone, the glands become atrophied and can no longer produce cordisone; is this true?
