Hi Scared Ann........I wish I could help but I wasn't as "special" as you !!! My surgeon said an abcess / infection is a risk with LIS but it didn't happen to me........at least the abscess is away from your direct anus and once it is drained it will heal quickly and I am sure you will be put on antibiotics. Keep positive, keep breathing all will be well this is just a little set back, you will bounce back soon Sending you healing wishes xx

Hi scared Ann, I was talking to a friend who had similar to you........the abscess cleared up quite quickly for her once the dr dealt with it and she was on antibiotics.........Keep positive..... it's different to the fissure so keep imagining it healing and it will......would a salt bath help ? salt is a great healer......

She got great relief when they sorted her abscess and no diarrhea with anti b, ordinary painkillers over the counter sorted any pain, when you having procedure done ? good luck

Hi LovesTennis !!! How are you doing ?hope everything is great for you and your family.... Thank you for checking on me.
My CRS made a cut about half an inch to drained the abscess and he clean the incision. I felt sore the first day and little burning. But what I don't understand I do BM 4 times a day.is that something to be alarm?and how do I know if I am making progress when it comes to healing? I still have some spotting I don't know if from the abscess is that normal?

GOD BLESS !!!
