Perfect name for your possible fistula. At least that may be the answer to the cause of your fever. I hope whatever it is, there's a quick and easy fix.

Randy, so sorry to hear about the scope results and now F. Noticed that Susie said she had a fistula at the site of her hysterectomy. I had gallbladder out about six years ago, (before crohn's dx), and the scar in my belly button has been itchy and tender since then. Now it seems to be red and swollen, have wondered if it could be a fistula trying to come out? Hope you get some relief tonite, can you try sitz bath with epson salts or something?

Randy, I don't know what a "tukus" is, but it sounds like you must be feeling totally drained.... if you don't feel you are getting sympathy from my side of the Atlantic don't be confused, it's just that this whole thing "tukus" by surprise ! yeah
