Hi
Are you on any stool softners' as in movicol or similar
My surgeon said it may cause mine I get very little drainage still 'i had a fistulotomy in Dec '
Do you still get ant aches and throbing ' I still get some specialy after a bm and if I do multi bms I may bet a little blood but my surgeon said I have healed OK may be from a couple of
Hemmorhoids '

I heard other people here report that their doctor said a little discharge is normal, even months in. My wounds still have some discharge. Not a lot. Just some mucus-looking stuff. Pretty gross. I have my surgery nine days ago.
Did you have a lot of post-operative pain? If so, how long did it last? I still have indescribable pain on my very soft BMs. Its like the stool is made of acid. Everything that I've read says that it should feel better by now and I'm getting desperate.

Hey coconut
9 days is very early in recovery terms some people take months and months to recover keep eye on drainage an pain if it get way worse 'se a doctor,
I had a fistulotomy which is different to a lis and evolved some internal sphincter being cut ,its deeper than a lis '
Keep it soft
Here's to great healing
Health an happiness

Hi All,

I'm facing similar situation. I've had a perianal abscess which was very painful. I was hardly able to walk/sit properly, i.e. reduced to no movement. On the day of the surgery. it burst out on its own but then also I went for the surgery which was alright and the whole area was drained and cleaned. The surgery was done on 18th February, 2016 and the wound almost healed in 8-9 weeks but then I started experiencing pain in the same region after almost 10 weeks of the surgery. There was also a bit of pain and discharge coming through. I went to my CRS again, and after undergoing MRI scan, I was told that it was a low fistula. He further explained that 50% of abscess turn into fistula so that's pretty normal. I just wanted to get rid of all this pain and so I decided to undergo another surgery (called fistulectomy) on 17th May which was less painful than the previous one. The wound has healed properly in about a month and only a small bit is left now. I'm taking sitz baths twice every day and still taking laxative to avoid constipation. I'm also having daily dressings. The healing has been fine until last week and now, I'm experiencing discharge and similar pain (inflammation and needle like pain like before being diagnosed with abscess) after every bowel movement. There isn't any blood in the discharge but there are some stool particles. There are also some brown/yellow coloured stuffs which looks like puss with foul smell. Is that normal or is there any chance that I might have another fistula/abscess? I'm a bit worried as I don't want to go through all of that again. Last 6-7 months have been really painful.

Any help/suggestions/tips is greatly appreciated.

Thanks a lot.
