I have fistulizing Crohn's and had to have surgery where half of my colon was removed. I've been in remission since then (8-06). My doctor said I'm considered a mild case but I had read somewhere that because it's fistulizing and strictureing it's consider medium to severe. I haven't had another fistula form since surgery that I know of since I didn't know I had CD until my previous one broke through to my bladder. What are your experience?
