I had a new fistula form after my 2nd infusion. After my 3rd infusion it closed for about 2 weeks but busted open again right before 4th infusion. After my 4th infusion, it has gotten worse-more blood and pus.
So, does that mean it's not working for me? I really could use some advice here.....I won't see the Dr. until after my 5th infusion and I am going to Mt. Sinai a week before the 5th infusion but would like to know how to address this issue with the new Dr.
Thanks in advance,
36 year old female. Dx'd and undx'd a few times. Was just redx'd again 04/2007.
History of rectal abscesses and fistulas (28 surgeries including abscess I & D, exploratory surgeries, 2 C-ton drains and 1 fistula plug) Count does not include self bursting abscesses.
1st Remicade infusion 6/5/07. Lots of joint pain, and a new fistula since the 2nd infusion 6/19.
Praying I'll get better soon so we can have a baby.
