hey everyone not been on for a while but im back! :-)
right ill get to the point. what are fissures ,fistulas, perianal vaginal fistulas?
i know i may sound really stupid but i have never had the experience and i know i wouldnt know what to look for if i was having trouble in those areas.
i just wondered if someone could explain to me what they are and what to look for when something like that starts? like i said i have never experienced anything like that before but would just like to be educated on it as it could happen to me at some time and would like to know more about it. greatly appreciated. :-)

Angel I have never had any of these items, so I can't comment on that. But did want to tell you, not everyone gets those. There are different types of Crohns. I have the scarring/stricturing type of Crohns. In other words, I have more problems with blockages. Just didn't want you to worry becuz you see others with Crohns having fistulas etc, and thinking just because others get them you will too. Crohns is a very individual disease.

Also, wanted to welcome you to Healingwell. There are alot of great folks that will be happy to help as they can. Look forward to hearing more from you.

God Bless,
