43 yr old male diag with Crohn's at age 13
if i didnt have fisutlas and an abcess id barely know i had Crohns now. its so bad i got a colostomy in Nov of 09 to let the abcess heal and fisutlas dry up. its gottne better now that its been 8 months past but its still not gone completely. i am to have a scope in august to see if getting "reconnected" is a possibiluty.
Q: anyone have a bag and get reconnected after 8 months? im worried about the muscles down there still being useful. been trying to keep flexing them but who knows.
Q: anyone recommend some meds or treatments to help the fistulas and abcess go away WITH crohns?
been reading the the bad stories of plugs and setons. just dont understand why both abcess and fistula cant be REMOVED by surgery.
thanks for any and all advice
pentasa, flagyl b12 multi and many antibiotics plus a humira shot every other week
