I'm kind of wondering the same thing.. I mean, what if a person doesn't have much D but the 3 fistulas are still open and draining copious amounts of pus, and extremely painful. I also have red spots all over my body and at least 2 abcesses at any one time even though I'm on 3 antibiotics. Right now I have one big one on my girly parts and it hurts so bad to wipe.
Now even though the D isn't bad this sure doesn't feel like remission.
