what kind of symptoms are u getting from your stricture? I think I have a stricture, and I feel entocort helps for keeping it less inflammed. But i have varying cycles where for a few days or so I have lower appetite, maybe slight nausea and slight cramping. Then usually, I increase my entocort dose and eat mostly easy to digest liquids, and things improve after about 3-5 days. Anyways, even though its a battle sometimes, I hear of people living with more mild strictures for years potentially. So if your not having major symptoms, they probably won't even bother to dilate it or anything.
