We were thankful to find an entirely different path, focused on identifying and resolving nutritional deficiencies and toxicities. That path equipped the body to heal itself. No more fistulas, no more other Crohn's symptoms.
Setons didn't work for me...landed me 6 weeks in hospital and went through serious withdrawal. They went through my levitor ani muscles so obviously they'd cause pain. I also kept abscessing while the setons were in. 7 or 8 i&D's and another coming.
Leslie can you please elaborate as too what your husband took to end this nightmare?
wjstreet---I'm the exception and have severe CD so please try not to be scared off. I'd go the abx route and hopefully that will address your abscess. Please let us know how we can help as setons work for the majority of people.
