Hello Everyone
Iam fighting with crohns disaese more then 7 years.
I had 4 surgery s because of Crohns disease since 7 years.
I had 2 surgerys from my intestinal and 2 from my anal fistula.
My intestinal works fine at the minute but i still have problem with my fistula and it drains.Since ive learned i have Crohns disease ive used Remicade,Humira,Salofalk,Cipro,Flagyl,Immuran and some little others.
1 year ago i was using Remicade and after i used a long time it didnt responded so we made a dose test and there was almost no remicade in my body.2 month ago we decided to make another dose test with my doctor and suprisly there were still Remicade in my body even after 6 months.So we decided to turn back to Remicade from Humira.
After that i had a surgery and surgent put a drainer to my fistula.Then i tried the Remicade again.It is not healing still but doctor said he is hopefull to stop drain after 2-3 months.
I have made a resarch and finded these medication and things that can help Crohn:
vsl3 probiotic
And my question is do anybody had a past with anal fistula ?
What do you guys think about the treatment?
And last is the other medications that i have mentioned at the last can help me in future?
Thank You

Hi Welcome to Healing Well . I am not one that has had a rectal fistula although there are lots here that have, My fistula's were from large to small bowel and a small one to the surface of my abdomin. The Remicade did heal mine one to abdomin. I know they aren't the greastest things to deal with but I am sure others here will be along to help you with this. lol gail
