Hi all--I'm typically on the ulcerative colitis board, but I have been "lurking" on this board since I was told by my GI due to my mouth sores I may have chrones-colitis. My colonoscopy in March didn't reveal that, though. During my last flare in August, I had the pain, bleeding and tenderness between my vagina and anus and it seemed to be like a 'sac' on the outside of my body--I had wondered if it was a skin tag. I didn't have a clue and was scared to say anything. I am so glad, Irish Red, that you've
opened up about
it, b/c I was not so sure how to broach the subject and didn't know what it was and how to really talk about
I am interested in the responses. Even Mayoclinc website talks of fistulas and abcesses (which mine sounds more like) but they don't address specific treatments for that part of chrones.
