LOL, pred always makes me go a loose stool literally the first thing when I wake up in the morning. Almost have to rush to the potty to get there in time. I really miss pred sometimes although, now I know why I was still sore a lot even when taking it. But wow, it should just help get the inflammation around that stricture way down. And sometimes that can help positively. I wouldn't worry too much. I will say this: eat a banana a day while on pred. It always made me get sore shins which my mom (long time on and off pred...sometimes years) told me is caused by a loss of potassium while on the steroid. Taking more water and eating a whole potato or a banana a day seriously helped cut down the sore shin...actually made the soreness vanish. That's the only warning besides get your calcium in too.
