I was diagnosed with Crohn's 13 years ago and I am am now 40. I have managed the Crohn's flare-ups pretty well since then but the biggest challenge for me has been trying to close a recto-vaginal fistula which was discovered a few years ago. I was given a colostomy and numerous attempts have been made to close it but without success - plug method, flap, pig tissue cell regrowth the list goes on....I have lived with my stoma quite happily but I would like to have it closed if a solution to closing my fistula can be found. The latest suggestion is an injection called Inflixomab. I was wondering if anyone has had similar experiences and if they have any advice? Thank you!
