I have peri-anal CD. It has spread through my large intestines, but it primarily was in my descending colon and rectum when it all started. They went back and forth on whether it was CD or UC, but eventually, a doctor finally told you.. "You can't have UC if you have fistulas, abscesses, fissures, and skin tags." So, it was clarified, I have CD...and it is PRIMARILY perianal..and also one of the most painful locations because that is where a LOT of nerves are located.
I'm on Humira after failing a ton of drugs, but now I've had a severe reaction to the Humira and not sure if I'll be allowed to continue.
