I have know about
my fistula for years and other doctors ignored what I was saying. One said it was anticipation of a BM. I did finally after 30 years have a dr who listened and she repaired my fistual. I have some mucous. I am on Apriso and imodium for only immediate graditification. Lialda is great, but the patent won't expire for a few more years, to make it more affordable.
I ate my first Thanksgiving dinner with my family w/o incident and held it the entire night( I usually have to leave the table because the food would go right thru me. Meaning I would have to eat 2 small meals to get it in.
