To anyones knowledge, I don't have any narrowing, strictures or obstructions. My GI was implying that my intestines react powerfully to prednisone. He said that prednisone also pulls fluid from the intestines thereby firming things up.
To patientspiders - YES, all my doctors are very concerned about
prescribing or shooting me with steroids because of my avascular necrosis. The down side of not doing the pred or getting the joint injections is I have no mobility or quality of life. So I can spend my time lying in bed or on the sofa in pain of do the 'roids and get on with life. It is never an easy decision but for the time being I am choosing mobility and pain relief over possible complications in the future.
