• Welcome to Crohn's Forum, a support group for people with all forms of IBD. While this community is not a substitute for doctor's advice and we cannot treat or diagnose, we find being able to communicate with others who have IBD is invaluable as we navigate our struggles and celebrate our successes. We invite you to join us.


If a Dr told a patient that their fistula surgery had healed but the patient told the Dr they had constipation with blood, how can the Dr say that the fistula has healed if the constipation could cause complications for fistula even if fully healed? Could the Dr be giving the wrong prognosis here? Can someone give me their opinion here please?
