pb, you can do any/everything with a fistula- it's not going to get damaged in any way. There are no physical limitations due to any sort of fistula. The sore butt however...... I suppose that's your call! Mine has been sore the past few days too, I swear my colon knows something's up & has decided to make my life extra miserable. The only thing that will bother an RV fistula is stool passing thru it- my surgeon just told me that if the RV fistula is there & stuff is coming thru, it's basically infected. I'm thinking "Keep talking, doc! Makes my choice a heckuva lot easier!". Have you noticed any improvement with the Humira?
