I've suffered alot throughout my 20+ years of having Crohn's disease and I've put up with alot of things relating to this f 'ing disease, but it's the abscesses, fissures and fistulas that I can't stand.
I've been doing so well lately but this past week, I've developed yet another abscess. But it's the type of abscess that's discouraging. It's a form or peri-anal abscess. Has anyone ever had a intramuscular peri-anal abscess before? This will be my second, if it doesn't go away. The intramuscular part developed over the past two days. I can't see it, by I can feel it. It's bad enough I have a fistula in generally the same area, but then add this to it......I can't seem to win.
The last time I developed this, it ended up with surgical intervention, alot of time off work and at least a week in hospital, not to mention cutting me open and leaving it open to heal. Fun.
It takes to saying "Pain in the Ass" to a whole new meaning. Maybe the Imuran isn't working anymore. Thank god I have some T 3's to take....it's not a comfortable feeling.
Think it's time to do some painting......
