Thanks for the info. She had the abcess drained in July, it did a great deal to relieve the horrible pain she was in. We just got back from the CR doc and she's going in for surgery for another drain , I think he wants to get a better look. He said he's limited in the office because of the amount of pain she's in.
This CR doc was recommended by her GI who has treated my husband and I and he seems to be very knowledgeable about Crohns.
It was the GI that didn't want to put her on Humira because of her age. Maybe it's because other than this darn abcess she's been feelin' pretty good. He referred to Humira as the heavy artillery. I'm trying to talk her into joining this forum I find it very supportive.
