While Remicade is very good at healing fistulae, it is not a 100% guarantee. Usually, it can take several infusions before improvement in symptoms is noted. My gut symptoms, particularly the diarrhea, responded after my third infusion. So hopefully, you will begin to see improvements after your next couple of infusions. All the best to you.
