so its been a while since i've posted here, because i've been in remission since my last perianal abscess disaster about a year ago.
last week i had an incisional hernia repaired for the second time (from my resection back in 2006)
and everything was going well until i few days ago i started having that all too familiar pain in my bottom.
i thought for sure an abscess, since every time i feel this pain that what it turns out to be.
took myself to emerg and got in for an MRI today. My GI told me they dont see an abscess just fistualas and what im feeling is probably one of them trying to burrow its way out through the skin. the pain is right where i have a surgeon created fistula in order to get in to drain an abscess over a year ago
all i can say is OUCH!!!
the pain in my bottom is worse than the pain of having my stomach cut open from top to bottom.
i've been in remission for about a year, and on remicade, why is this happening now?
has anyone had a bad flare up caused by unrelated surgery??
and also, im on cipro and flagyl now,other that hot baths, is there something i can do to move this fistula along? i've never had just a fistula acting up. only abscesses that required draining which provides almost instant relief.
all i can think of is that my hernia surgery caused my crohns to flare.
it feels like it will never end.
