    So I'm finally giving in. I'm scheduled to get a cleft lift surgical consult with Dr. Brand. I have a few questions for the board:
    1) Does anyone have experience with Dr. Brand?
    2) Has anyone here gotten a cleft lift while on a TNF-inhibitor (Remicade, Humira, Enberel, etc)?
    3) How long should I expect to have to wait before I can run again?
    4) How long after the surgery are you able to walk around?

    Confirmed that I will be getting the cleft lift. Waiting for the scheduler to call me (Monday or Tuesday). He said I have two pits that are larger than average 6 cm from the anus (not close enough to be concerned)

    Hi, why not go for gips/pit picking? What's your history like?
