Hi there! I too lost a lot of hair from prednisone and was hospitalized for my proctitis last year. I was on IV steriods in the hospital. My stylist said the last time she cut my hair that it was "growing back"...and to be honest it was falling out when i was on prednsione and a few months after. Now, and I have not had the drug since September it is relatively back to normal. Good luck!
