I've been reading some posts, and it seems these things are hard to heal. My daughter has 3 c-ton drains in and has been having to wear sanitary pads since July'07. The 2nd and 3rd drains were put in a week ago. She got sick on Flagyl and I just called the dr to see if he wants to put her back on Cipro.
Did I read that antibiotics are not always the answer? someone mentioned that the abcess has to be cleaned out which is what the surgeon did last week.
What meds are out there to help heal this abcess, at this time she doesn't have any other "crohns" symptons (so used to freq bms feel its normal). She's on Lialda, B-12, Probiotics, and will probably go back on Cipro.
The other meds I see out there like Humira or Remicade, what symtoms or crohns issues do they address? Is it the c and d and abdominal discomfort or will it help with the abcess and fistula?
