What about antibiotics? I thought Flagyl could help with fistulas?
I know what you mean about worrying over the liver. I had liver problems in the past so I'm also skeptical of trying immunosuppressants/modulators. I've had some success with enteral nutrition, it put me into remission, though I'm having a hard time staying there... If turning off the inflammation could help heal the fistula, maybe EN is worth a try? I noticed a mild elevation of my ALT and AST while I was on EN exclusively, but it was never high enough that my hepatologist was concerned.
