IT WORKED! IT WORKED! IT WORKED! IT WORKED! IT WORKED! I can't say it enough!!! The fistula is gone! As recently as 2 weeks ago I thought it hadn't worked b/c I was having a bit of pain at the fistula site during a bout of bad D. Over the past month I have felt better than usual except for that one episode. I went to my colorectal doctor yesterday and she was elated that it was healing so well. This was the best christmas gift I've ever gotten!
So, for anyone who has IBS and Crohn's related fistulas- take heart... there can be hope. EZ- thank you for your encouraging words. I hope your son continues to do well.
