seton wire, what to expect?, how to cope !!!

Does anyone have experience with a seton wire ? Waiting for surgery, been put on urgent list. Horrible so far. Been on multiple antibiotics and am on biologics. MRI shows multiple tracts of fistulas. Really upset and worried. Can anyone give me some idea of what to expect, how to cope etc? Please.

    Hey @fairy1!

    The editorial team wrote an article about fistula options previously which may be of some use: https://inflammatoryboweldisease.net/treatment/surgery-overview/surgery-for-fistulas/

    Plus, @jenna-farmer previously wrote about living with a seton, which I think should really help you understand how it may impact you, and things to consider: https://inflammatoryboweldisease.net/living/seton

    Good luck to you!
