Hi Ivy6, They do not have me on any meds at this time but I go back to the dr thur for a checkup I may ask him about humira or Remicade are these meds only for Crohn's patients?
I haven't had a chance to check out some of your links but i definitely will Thanks so much for sharing.
Did you ever feel like you were going to go crazy if you didn't heal and quit draining? I feel like I should have invested in Kotex!
I understand your feelings. I had a seton in place for two years I believe. Then had the plug installed. To anwser your question on drainage, no the drainage does not have to end to recieve the plug. What was explained to me is that your crohn's needs to be under control and no swelling in the area where the plug is going to be stitched in. If there is any swelling then the out come will be 100 percent failure because the stitch will not hold the plug in place. But the fact of having crohn's disease lowers the chance of success with the plug. Mine was declared a failure after 90 days. The only thing that healed my fistulae was Remicade which I had to come off of due to a reaction. Then the fistulae returned. Good luck you and us all !
