Yes, it oozed pus and stuff. It hurt the worst after I had a bowel movement. It was a blind fistula which means it had a beginning but not a second opening like some fistulas do. It was a tunnel into my perineum, it started in my LIS incision and was about an inch long. Now that it's been "deroofed", it is a big long wound inside my rectum. But every day it feels a little better. Bleeding and oozing has decreased.
