The past 24 hours have been an entire ordeal, dealing with a perianal abscess and my Crohn's Disease, only too have to give myself my Stelara Self-Injection #9 today.
Since my body decided to act up yesterday, the topic for today's video is perianal abscesses and fistulotomies.
4 years ago, I had my first Crohn's disease surgery, a second not long after, a perianal abscess that lead to a fistulotomy.
Last year, I found another abscess on my rectum, but it has only had one bad day and lead to one ER visit, otherwise it is just there.
Yesterday, this abscess decided to get inflamed and sore, leading to a visit with my GI doctor this morning and a rectal exam to start my day. Since this is another perianal disease manifestation of my Crohn's disease, we have scheduled exam under anesthesia, with a possible fistulotomy for Thursday morning.
I apologize if I ramble through this video. I feel like I have so much going on and I get stressed out with these shots for some reason.
