I'm new to this forum, but my husband has been on here and recommends I try asking fellow Crohns patients for advice. Here's my brief history: I was diagnosed with Crohns Colitis in 2003 at 17 years old. I've had symptoms on and off since then and nothing seems to really help. about two weeks ago, my new gastroenterologist discovered a revtovaginal fistula for which I had a seton placed just yesterday.
Basically, I'm nervous and scared as to how this will affect my life. I'm a newlywed- I've been married for one month. The surgeon tells me I can't take baths and I'm very uncomfortable sitting down right now. I don't think the pain medication they gave me is necessary, though. Has anyone had luck with a similar issue? At this point, I'm not even sure what to ask, but any advice would be so helpful.
Thank you in advance.
