Hi - I have been off Remicade for almost 2 years now and have done great !
Had a colonoscopy yesterday and the results were not great ...active crohns in colon and ileum ; 2 fistuals ...one in colon and other vaginal area ...
Last time I ended up in the hospital with 5 fistuals I didnt even know I had them ...same here ...I have more stomach pain now since the colonoscopy then I did a day ago !
My insurance stopped paying for the Cade and won't pay for the Humira...my doc wants to see me in two weeks after all path results are back to discuss the plan ...I know he wants me on one of these...but, I can't afford it...
Is there anything else to heal the fistuals ???
I feel like I have a "time" frame...I dont know how long before I am heading for trouble -
