Abcesses And Fistulas
by: Inna

Jess, we are so sorry to hear about your tough time with Crohns disease.

You are very brave and proactive to continue searching for other options to get better. It's wonderful!

Abcesses and fistulas are common in active Crohn's disease.

Sometimes surgery is the only option. The doctors will weight out all the pros and cons.

No one can tell you to go with the surgery or not. It's between you and your doctor. There is much information that needs to be looked at like your labs, images, presentation, cultures, etc.

Yes, there are many things you can do to try improving your health like acupuncture, taking immune system modulators, changing your diet, testing for allergies, taking probiotics, taking detox products, juicing, meditation, etc. You can start right away or after surgery.

Natural methods take time to work. It's a big job to repair your digestive system.

If you are in acute state and require a surgery right away, you may want to hold off on everything else for now.

I know two people with similar cases. One is still treated with medications, the other had a surgery and doing better now. But he had to go through very tough year after ileostomy.

We wish you so much health and strength. Jess, we hope that you will let us know very soon that you are feeling MUCH better.

Fistulas
by: simon

I too had these, I was put on Remicade , every 6 weeks.

I have seen a complete reversal in fistulas, remicade heals them , just so you know, if remicade did not work, I would have a bag attached and that would be for life.

Remicade is a last resort, but it does work. good luck. It changed my life

I get very bad fistulas to the point that i can't sit down. This usually happens a week before my remicade is due (for me only works for 5 weeks but may be different for you). Withing days of getting my remicade the inflammation goes down. Good luck and know that you're not nor will you ever be alone in this!
