Ok so it's been 2 months since my DX. I started on Pentasa and was just switched a week ago to Lialda.(same drug family just less pills a day) My stomach has been doing GREAT! I feel NO stomach pains & I have a BM once a day. I have been taking Iron so I am sure that has something to do with the bulkier BM's. What is bothering me is the 2 fissures, the skin tags that get very irritated and my fistula is sore after a BM. I don't want to go back to my Colo-Rectal until my fissures improve b/c the last time they got better she re-
opened them during and examination. Her and my GI suggested Remicade but I don't know if I need it. I am trying to get pregnant and I don't want to
open up a whole new can of worms. Can I be in remission if I am still having problems with the fissures and the tags? I have also noticed that for the last few weeks my tummy gurgles have returned and they weren't there for over a month..
