I currently am taking these meds: Imuran, Asacol, Cipro, and Flagyl. I was diagnosed with CD back in 2002-2003 and am reacting fine to the above listed meds, and do not have too much trouble. about
3 years ago, I was hospitalized with abcesses and I had a tube inserted through my lower abdomen to drain one of the larger abcesses. Due to this tube, I now have a false fistula track that was formed. This track is located on my lower abdomen, and it still has not healed. The site will heal over, but then air and a little bit of pus will work its way up and my skin will eventually pop. The process doesn't hurt, it is just discomforting. The popping of the fistula site has been happening on and off for the last 3 years, and since Imuran isn't helping, I am thinking about
trying Remicade to help heal this fistula.
Has anyone had their fistulas close up completely and heal? I know that once Remicade is started it cannot be stopped then started back up again. It is also pretty expensive so I just would like to know about
how effective it has been for others in healing fistulas. Any feedback would be great!
