Abscess question

Hi everyone!
Question: On 12/18/2015 I had to have an abscess removed near groin (what a relief!) and thankfully, it's almost completely healed! My CRS keeps telling me me to be on the lookout for another abscess or a fistula formation, but if the abscessed area was removed and Cipro/Flagyl combo was taken, shouldn't that eliminate the possibility of further infection?

Dx Crohn's 2014

Current Rx:
Remicade (starting 2/16/16), Imuran, Celebrex, Flovent (for EoE), Singulair

Previous Rx:
Prednisone (pure evil), Budesonide (bad reaction), Prilosec, Bentyl, Protonix, Cimzia (failed after 4 months), Humira (failed after 7 months)
