D...I had a seton placed. Fortunately, my one fistula was perianal and involved limited muscle tissue. As the RN told me "it's the best kind to get if you have to have a fistula". I am considering some of the higher power drugs if I have another fistula, but I liked the relatively non=invasiveness of the seton. I am seeing my gi doc in about
10 days...he wanted me on remicade, but I am declining--he has said that higher doses of imuran without the remicade should help in the perianal disease. I have to find out what his definition of higher dose is. I'll let you know what I hear on that.
Take care as I remember what it was like those first months after diagnosis. Let me know if you want or need to chat!
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that,
stable with Pentasa
, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, only on B12 and vitamin supplements now
I'm riding on the escalator of life....
