Give it time and see how or if it heals, you only just had it done and since all the research points at how many complications can arrise from having a flared skin tag removed then I sure hope others won't jump the gun thinking if it works out for one person that it will work out for them as well, cuz for many it ended up causing more bad than good.

I've also altered my diet (no junky stuff at all, processed, fast-foods, refined sugars, ect) and exercise regularly.
I went from 30+ bloody BM's/day with lots of lower back pain to an average of 5/day no bleeding no back pain and completely formed stools, still have severe urgency issues.

18 yrs of having crohn's with it starting in the anus with perianal crohn's skin tags gives me a bit more of an edge than many of the young GI's practicing today, especially when I was well informed by top colon and rectom surgeons as well as my GI who is a lead researcher for crohn's and colitis in Canada. All the reliable sites will confirm that getting flared perianal crohn's skin tags removed tend to cause more grief than good to the patient and it doesn't stop new ones from appearing...getting them removed can cause many issues (especially while in a flared state) like major infections due to the fact that given the area, healing is too difficult and the fact that they are diseased tissue while in a flared state, being told by more than one specialist that chances of them remaining an open wound is more likely (leading to infections and abcess issues) than not. Believe me I hate my anal skin tags and if I had the option of getting them removed then I'd jump at it, but not if it means the more than likely mess of problems that come with it, trading one problem for another isn't exactly my idea of a good choice, especially since the latter (getting them removed while flaring) leaves most people worse off than they were to begin with.

When they're small (not in a flared state) they can be snipped off right in the docs office with a little freezing, that's different all together. Mine are larger than a lima bean and I have many surrounding the anus and they are and have always been in a flared state ever since they were misDX as hemmies and were banded (also while they were in a flared state). That has caused me enough grief with them let alone getting them cut off, I couldn't even imagine how much trouble I'd be in then, so unless/until they find a 100% safe way to remove them I'm leaving mine well enough alone.

Sure, I'd love to know his info, for the last 2 decades I've been told repeatedly to leave them alone, maybe it's cuz mine were banded when they were misDX as being hemmies, I don't know, but unless I can be guaranteed I won't be worse off if I have them removed I'm not taking any chances.

I want mine removed so badly but my GI a long time ago had said they can't be removed. I hadn't heard that they might be able to be removed when they aren't inflamed. That would be wonderful. I'll keep an eye on them and bring it up to my new GI's.

Well, I hope you're not under the impression that I want to fight/argue cuz I don't, I just don't want others to feel like getting them removed while in a flare is no big deal (and when I had posted alink about it a little while ago you sure did seem to be offended and stated that I was trying to scare people when that wasn't my intentions at all, I was making people aware of what research said about perianal crohn's skin tags) when from my own experiance I've heard nothing but the opposite...man I wish it was no big deal and if for you it turns out not to be then you're very lucky cuz from all that I've heard and read it's more common for it to be a mistake than a good thing.

That's why everytime I see my GI I bring it up only to hear the same thing "leave well enough alone" and I always tell him that I'm hoping that a safe way will be found to deal with mine and that's why I'm always asking, he says when he hears of something he'll let me know.

 

I'll read the link you posted.

Miss Cris, that's what I've been told by all the specialists, that when they shrink down (remission state) they can simply be snipped off in the docs office with a little freezing but it doesn't guarantee new ones won't come back, I've also been told that when flared cortifoam rectal meds can help shrink them down, but not in my case cuz of mine being banded while in a flare, and it's true cuz I've been on cortifoam many times (when dealing with proctitis...inflammation of the rectom) and it didn't do a darn thing for my flared tags.

I hate my tags, they embarass me even though no one sees them (I'm married but it's not like hubby looks at them or anything) but I know they're there and they bother me emotionally and physically, more often than not they hurt and sometimes they get super hard and that makes the skin hurt. Mine are so big and I have 5 of them all comming out of my anus hole and all around it from the top where the "taint" is (taint being the skin between the a-hole and the vagina) and the one at the top of my taint basically covers the taint area so it pretty much is touching my vagina....sounds as sick as it looks too. Plus I now know that those tags of mine have alot to do with my severe issues of holding in my stools when the urges hit...but I was warned that removing mine may make that issue worse incase they cut into some of the muscle there....I hate this.

Just looked at the link you posted frog, unfortunately I'm in Alberta Canada and don't see myself being able to go to Boston to see your doc..anyways I hope you continue to heal and don't have any ill effects from your surgery.

pb4, I have one massive skin tag that's like yours. It's a knobby ridge from the a-hole right up to the vagina. I hate it! I meant to ask my surgeon about removing it, but forgot. It no longer bothers me physically (it used to get hard and even weeped some), but now it's just the emotional/mental thing of hating it. Maybe someday I can have it lasered or something.

spookyhurst, be sure to let me know what your doc says about removing it...When I first got sick and my tags were in terrible shape I had some weird leakage from my a-hole but not from the actual tags themselves (like there weren't any cuts or holes in the tags)...it was so painful to have BM's, especially all those multiple bowel movements that I used to have to fill the tub with water and poop in the tub (such a disgusting disease), by then I was having D from the CD affecting me internally. They're still in terrible shape but because I've gotten my proc*** under pretty good control I don't get that leakage which I'm pretty sure was why I was having the leakage at that time.

thanks..i hope things continue to be okay...i just want others to have hope...that maybe...their are options and we don't all have to always be in a mode of suffering..but with that said..i do not..at all...think that people should mess around with their bodies..when they are in the middle of a flare..because the pain is too much...and i learned my lesson when i got a seton..and that one didn't work in under a month went through the whole process again for a silk one..meanwhile i was on not one medication..that could actually help the inflammation..and it was the most painful time of my life...i was in tears everyday all day..but before i got my tag removed i had recieved Remicade twice..now the tag shrunk..but their was a point it would shrink too..and then it just stayed...and it was so annoying because my tag would bleed on both sides...and their seemed to be some type of a tear on the tag itself..which i think was causing the anus to have oh so many fissures..nine i counted...and now..i am taking fiber..but its so nice with it gone..because strange enough i don't have pain anymore when i go to the bathroom...and i am amazed and happy and want to share some happiness..share some hope..maybe just maybe..we have options..we have hope..maybe..we can keep our head up and keep asking questions and keep probing for answers..:)

I wasn't offended..i was scared..i thought it was hopeless to have it removed...and you were telling people straight up don't do it...i almost canceled my surgery altogether because i was so afraid..but i am so glad i went through with it and at least gave it a try...even if i have a big wound...i am dealing with it..its ugly it hurts..but its not so bad..or they wouldn't let me pack it myself or go home..in this state..they would keep me in the hospital..and i truly did clean the house the next day
