I just, on Friday, had a synthetic plug put in, to HOPEFULLY heal my pouch-vaginal fistula. The idea is that my body would dissolve the plug, and send "healing" cells to the area to fill in the tract. Pretty sure I saw the plug come out yesterday- pretty bummed. I do have Crohn's and was given a 20-30% chance of this working...but I am more dissapointed than I thought I would be. I was given activity restrictions which I followed, but am wondering if I had taken it even easier if it would have worked...There are other more invasive options which have a 50-60% chance of working, but, if they fail..then the fistula is bigger. It's just emotionally hard to deal with feeling like my body is a bit broken, not working how it is supposed to, and feeling kinda gross, since I have symptoms daily. Does anyone have tips for managing the symptoms? Sorry for my rant- just so nice that this group exists...and I totally understand what some of you are going through!
