Remicade cleared mine up pretty quick, but I had setons/drains in them forever, so that might be part of it...? I was also given Remicade every 4 weeks for the first 3 months or so, so the fistulas didn't stand much of a chance.
How far apart are your infusions? If you're doing it every 8 weeks, maybe you could talk with your doc about getting juiced every 6 or 7 weeks for a few doses to see if you can nix the fistulas for good...? Just a thought.
I know they're a pain... and I wish you the best!
