I had a fistula that was enterocutaneous. It came through where my insicion was from my past surgeries. It started feeling like an abscess that I had in the same spot a few months prior. I was on Entocort and pentasa when the darn thing happened. I had a piece of suture that was left behind that the doc said would make its way out and it did one day. The area finally healed and 2 weeks later it seemed to come back. I called the office and my doc had been on vacation that following week so I was to make an appt with a doc covering the following day since it occured on a Sunday. Later that day I changed the gauze and there was feces there...I called the office back. At this point I had been waiting on approval for Humira it came though and did help tremendously I ended up having to increase the humira shots to weekly which helped still but never healed it. I had surgery for my fistula on January 11th. Yet again I had complications so now with a wound infection I cannot use HUmira and I am on no other CD meds since none seem to work. I am fearful that while this thing heals that the CD will flare again I know I have one spot nea the rectum that is still flaring and was in Dec when I had my pre surgical colonoscopy.
I hope for your sake it isnt a fistula but if it is I hope that medicine can help...I tried TPN for it too with no luck...good luck with the CD
