          Hello, I am still hanging in there from my surgery in november. Remember i got a fistula and 4 abcesses after the surgery. I am down to one jp seton. I went to dr yesterday. He says i still have small tear in intestine where i had my resection. He went in there and used alcohol to ruff it up to try and cause some scarring he said. If that doesn't work then will have to have surgery again to fix it. I am on remicade right now. I am having a terrible time sleeping. Up all night i get 4 hours sleep in 2 days then crash and repeat all over again. I am not on steroids weaned off of them. I was wondering if anybody else had this from the remicaDE.  I also think that once you have surgery you get abcessess and fistulas a lot. Does anyone else think this?
