    New to Remi..

    I've just been to see my GI. He has now 'officially' decided I have Crohns from my colonoscopy in Jan and the abscess/fistula that I am battling now. He has taken me off of my Prednisone and says keep taking Asacol until we set up for Remicaid. I'm kind of nervous about the Remi and very nervous...

    How much can we take?!?!

    I guess today is just an off day for me. The road to diagnosis was fortunately pretty quick for me. I guess I just have been really stressed with so much crap so quick. A year ago I was a seemingly healthy new mother. I had just been proposed to by the guy I loved more than anything. Things...

    Okay.. Dumb question..

    I hate to sound like an ignorant idiot but what is a fissure guys? I have a peri-rectal abscess/fistula. I had a seton placed on Valentine's Day. Is a fissure something I should be aware/cautious of? Also, any advice on the seton,etc. is greatly appreciated. Thanks guys, you're the best!!

    Hey guys, Basically I know I have at least an abscess. I had hemmoroids for a couple months but it seems like they are gone now. I finally went back to a doctor because I was still in terrible pain down there. The doctor then put a small incision in the spot which he thought was just cyst and...
