Hi, I've been reading the forums for a long time, but have never really posted. My bf has Crohns, diagnosed in 02, had J-pouch surgery before Crohns diagnosis. Within the last year he has devoloped 2 peri-anal fistulas, and has had setons placed. We just moved to Denver, he is getting started with a new GI doc and colorectal surgeon. They are suggesting a diverting ileostomy coupled with Humira injections (which he has been on before and doesn't really help the crohns part of his problems) until the fistulas heal? Do fistulas heal? Has anyone heard of this protocol before?
Thanks in advance for the advice!
