Hi everyone,
 
What a relief just breezing through some of these posts have been. I have not been diagnosed with Crohn's as of yet, but had been battling an anal fistula and abcess for over ayear, not really knowing what it was. I had the Seton done 08/18/09 I am just now not erribly sore from it. I was wondering if someone can help answer some questions for me about this-
 
1. I have to go for a follow up and possible tightening on Tuesday, will this be a painful procedure?
 
2. Reading more on here see many have a Seton in place for a long time, can you have sex? I am wondering when it is safe. The whole abcess thing really put a halt over the past year to mine and my hubby's sex life and I am hoing we can resume soon.
 
3.I guess once this heals I may have to have another surgery to close the fistula? Does that sound right?
 
I was scheduled to have a colonoscopy on 09/01, but they first did an anal ultrasound on 08/17 and the dr said I had a very dangerous infection and he took me in to surgery the next day. He will reschedule the colonoscopy after I m doing better, he will look for more fistulas and for signs of Crohn's. I have a lot of symptoms, but I am not sure if they are Crohn's or related to my Duodenal Switch w/ Biliopancreatic Diversion that I had for weight loss 7 years ago.
 
Anyway thank you for any insight on the Seton- I am still a little lost about it all.
