Thank you for all your responses! it does make perfect sense to go with the colo-rectal surgeon because of his expertise.
ive been in a downward spiral the last couple months, dealing with two abscesses, one of which turned into a fistula. i just got a seton a week ago, which made me feel worse. it goes from my rectum to left labia, and is irritating my rectal ulcers and skin tags. besides many other crohns symptoms, i havent been able to sit comfortably, walk, exercise, or do other activities for the last three years. im tired of all the pain, running to the bathroom, and constant maintenance.
bless you all. i know many of you have gone through much more than i have.
i see the cr surgeon for a followup in a week, so i hope i can keep things moving, so i can feel better.
