Has anyone had their seton fall out? My seton is banded together in 2 places with a tiny twist tie looking thing. One of the ties fell off (I think it just deterirated) and now it is being held together by one little tie. I am afraid it is going to fall out! I have a couple of questions:
 
1. Will it have to be put back in?
 
2. Will I have to have surgery again or is it an office procedure?
 
TIA!

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.

Mine hasn't fallen out...yet.  I was told that it might eventually.  And that it isn't a big deal.  I am pretty sure they don't put it back in.  Mine is tied together....no twist tie things....

Mine fell out during radiation. THe surgeon decided NOT to put it back in. I started Humira and it is healing anyways
