My wife had a resection done in February of 2007 and was placed on Remicade/6MP. She developed a reaction to Remicade and was placed on Humira/6MP around the summer of 2007.
She has been sypmtom free of Crohn's since the surgery, but she thinks she is noticing a vaginal fistula. She's had them before, so she knows the symptoms of one.
She contacted her doctor this morning.
My questions concerns Crohn's/Humira/Fistula. Because of an active fistula, does this mean her Crohn's is active or is Crohn's vs. Fistual independent of each other?
She doesn't have any symptom's of her Crohn's being active, just this possible fistula forming. Is this just a tip of a bigger problem?
She had other fistula's close up with Flagyl and Cipro. Not sure what these new doctors are going to do though. I'm just concerned about her Crohn's acting up again.
