First diagnosed with Crohn's in 2001 after large peri-rectal abscess..followed by ishiorectal horseshoe abscess...developed a anal fistula connected to the sphincter muscle..drained for about eight years..abscessing many times and getting lanced in the office. Recently had seton drain put in and incision made to drain..to get the inflammation under control to see how much muscle is involved and see if this fistula is possibly superficial. Drain should be in at least 6 weeks until next stage of surgery.
I am currently taking Pentasa..in the past..I have taken Asacol, Imuran, Flagyl, Prednisone. My colon rectal surgeon has stated I might up end up taking in the future..possibly Remicade, Humira, or 6MP.
I have also been diagnosed with Colitis, Lupus, Hyperthyrodism, and possibly Pleurisy.
I am allergic to Plaquenil, Iodine..when used as a contrast dye, latex.
