I just started taking Remicade and wondered if anyone had a fistula that healed up after taking Remicade? Also is it okay to swim if you have a Rectal/Vaginal fistula?

I am starting Remicade on Tuesday for an anal fistula..that is probally mid into the sphincter..i will let you it helps me..if i start to notice any changes...i think its fine to swim with your fistula...i have gone swimming many times...with my fistula...i would just go at a time..when i wasn't having alot of drainage..i would soak a bit...and then it would drain...and i would know..okay..its probally not going to drain again..until i had to use the bathroom...if anything..the chlorine..really seemed to clean things out and my fistula would seem almost like it was dried up or helped with the inflammation the pain and it drained less when i would swim...i recommend swimming...
