Diagnosed with CD in 1994;
In 1994 I was treated with Pentasa of no avail. Have being treated with Chinese herbal medicines for over 10 years.
I've had both. My fistula hurt(s) like hell. I guess from the inflammation and the reabscessing that happens.
I have a sneaking suspicion my fistula and abscess came from my chronic fissure. My fissure rarely bled, except when it was new.
Can you squat over a mirror? I've perfected this :) and it helps to see what could be going on.Good luck!!
