Its been a while since I've been on this site.
I don't really have a question, just seeing if there was anyone else out their in a similar situation.
I had a fistula I guess about 3 years ago, had remicade infusions and it basically healed, or so I thought. I got pregnant was very healthy through my pregnancy and was able to breastfeed (med free) for 6 months.
I went back on Imuran, which admittedly I am terrible at taking.
So fast forward, I had been trying to remember my meds and was doing really good for the last year and a half. Until a few weeks ago I notice the fistula had returned
I have an appointment with my GI in a week. i have a feeling I am due for a colonoscopy, yay, and then I assume more remicade, as my fistula is very small and I believe surgery would be a little extreme? Remicade is just so expensive, i'm tired of being a financial burden on my family with all the drugs and tests
So anyway thanks to anyone who read that, mostly I just want to talk to other people in this situation, no one around really understands what is going on.
