Abscess just popped up after fistulotomy

Postby Mparente » 18 Jun 2014, 19:51

I just noticed an abscess right above the fistulotomy incision. I had fistulotomy 11 days ago and everything was perfectly fine until around 2 this afternoon when I had a BM. I'm obviously freaked out and I'm meeting my doctor at the hospital in the morning. I'm pretty sure I'll need more drainage. Anyone else have this? I'm so upset

Hi Savaici,
My doctor assured me that the red, itchy bump is part of the healing process. I have no recourse other than to believe him. However, I've been having extremely bloody BMs that remind me of when I had a fissure in 2009. And today, I can feel the seton poking out of the incision. From what I read, it is probably falling out due to the fistulotomy healing. I haven't been looking at it or touching it really, so I'm just waiting until my next appointment Monday. Needless to say, UGH!
