Fistula surgery

Surgery originally was for ulcerative colitis and large intestine removed. Wore the pouch for 2 years and then lo and behold was told about the J-pouch, went for that surgery. Did well for awhile, alot of pouchitis then the abcess in anal area, then discovery of fistula. Oh and then oops said the doctors you were misdiagnosed you have Crohn's disease. Dang the large intestine removed for no reason, could have removed only the diseased area. Oh well, now I am an older man and have this dang fistula that has caused me sooo much pain I am beside myself. Dr. does not recommend "plug" says they fail, is there anything else? Alternative medication? I will try just about anything to get a reasonably normal life back for me and my family. Thanks !
