It did NOT work for me. As soon as the plug incorporated and the fistula closed, I got another abscess and another fistula popped up in another spot. Now I have 2 fistulas.
It was the most painful experience I have had. And I've had 24 abcesses! The healing time was really long and I keep panicking about doing something that would make the plug fall out. Like going to the bathroom.
Just because it did not work for me doesn't mean it won't work for you.
Best of luck!
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.
