I do not have any experience with a Seton, but hopefully one of our members who have will be along soon. I wanted to welcome you to Healingwell and also tell you we Crohnies are not supposed to use NSAIDS such as Ibruprofen as it can cause bleeding in us. I would suggest you call his doc about something for the pain. You can use things like stool softners to keep the stool softer and easier to pass. Thats what I do. As stated I don't have a seton, but do suffer with chronic pain, and have to take pain meds all the time. The stool softners help me not to be come constipated. Hugs!
PS: The forum is slower on the weekends, don't be surprised is you don't get many responses till Monday. Hugs!
