Hi Colleen
Yes, I had 5 surgeries related to Anal Fistula abscess drainage w/seton. It all got started with annal fissure that led into Anal Fistula. All of my surgical procedures were done between 2015-2017 in Arkansas except my last procedure was done here at Mayo. I had a mild Crohn’s disease on my lower ilium till my recent colonoscopy two weeks ago shows no active Crohn’s and all of biopsy were negative.
My last anal fistula procedure was done at Mayo in 2017 and I was put on weekly Humira by the Mayo GI doctor since then I had no symptoms of anal fistula till two weeks ago my symptoms came back. I will be heading back to Mayo first week of December to see my GI and Colo Rectal doctors.
I am searching for an answers about the regrowth of Fistula specially no sign of active Crohn’s.
Thanks
Rehan

Rehan, I will be most interested to hear what you learn after your GI visit at Mayo at the beginning of December. Hopefully you'll learn some tips that can help others here with a similar issue.
Safe travels.
