Thanks a lot for the response guys.
It's for my younger brother. He was also diagnosed with Crohn's 6 months ago. Except that his situation is more serious than mine. He's in constant pain and predisone is not working. He's been taking purinethol for the past 2 months without much success so far.
His dr. wants to start him on remicade now but i think that should be the last option. I asked him if the fiscula could cause pain and he said it doesn't. I can't quite remember if mine was causing pain but mine was from the bowel to the bladder and i had abcesses. My brother doesn't abcesses.
He has an an appointment tomorrow to get him started on remicade but i'm thinking if the should try out cipro and flagyl before that.
Should he go along with it before trying out anything else?
Thanks a lot!!
