Hi, I'm 22 and was diagnosed with both fistulating Crohn's disease & perianal Crohn's about a year & a half ago. So far I've had 4 operations for abscesses- 2 were lanced & packed, 1 lanced with a draining tube and the latest was lanced with a seton put in plus temporary stitches & a draining tube. I've been on Humira and Purinethol for over a year & despite still having the seton in I am now looking at a fifth operation. I am incredibly unwell after each procedure, to the point of vomiting due to the pain & am sick of having all these painful procedures only to have the abscess form months later. Has anyone had the same issue or had a procedure they felt really worked for them? I'm sick of this interrupting my life.
