My daughter is finally starting cimzia tomorrow.  I still don't understand how it will help the abscess heal, but we are praying it does.
 
between the 3 seton drains and the new fistula on her butt cheek she drains constantly and has to use multiple feminine pads to catch it.
 
Still taking vicodin as needed and worried about it.
 
She eats okay, if only she could get some relief from the abscess.

Sending good thoughts her way! I get a new seton placed tomorrow and still hoping the Cimzia and setons will help close the fistula. I hope your daughter is feeling better soon!
