Are there warning signs of a fistula/abscess?

Postby sean530 » 04 Dec 2018, 07:08

hi people
I'm just looking for advice/personal experiences from people as to the warning signs of an impending fistula or an abscess formation.

1. Did you notice any signs or were there certain symptoms you felt before you developed a fistula/abscess?

2. What was the cause and what advice would you give to others prevention vise?

3. Was it sudden or a gradual process as perceived by you?

Thank you for your time and effort and i hope we all heal from this ordeal sooner than later

If the condition is only impending it would probably be best to get a scan (CT/MRI) done, to locate the precise nature of the trouble and to make sure that it's not some more general problem like pelvic floor dysfunction, which can be managed with physiotherapy and exercises.
