I am not a CD patient, I am the mother of one. 16 months ago, my son presented with a psoaz abscess. they tried to do a colonoscopy, but he had a stricture 8 inches long, and about the diameter of a pencil sitting directly above his rectum. As he is allergic to remicade, his physician told hom that surgery was the only viable option, and that he would most likey have a permanent ostomy. He declined the surgery, electing instead to have a drain inserted into the abscess through the psoaz muscle. He then started a homeopathic treatment with Thiosinaminum along with 200 mg of CoQ10, gradually bumping it up to 1 gram of CoQ10 per day, along with the antibiotics prescribed to relieve the abscess. At the end of a month, the tissue that looked black and dead 30 days post hospital began to pink up. at 3 months, the drain was discontinued. The area where the stricture had been was pink and slightly narrowed compared to the bowel above it, it was nonetheless functional and the abscess had resolved. One year later, the abscess reoccurred, along with a fistula, but the stricture is still gone. If remicaid is not a viable option and stricturoplasty is not in the near future, perhaps some careful research on thiosinaminum and possibly a visit to a homeopath might be worthwhile, at least as a bridge to other treatments?
mom to Mike the wonderkid, with a broken body and a too kind heart, CD, LD, ASD, auto-immune arthritis, when will he get to be just Mike?
