I had a severe fissure that managed to heal on its own over a period of about 5 months. However, it healed in such a way that I developed a fistula over the area.
It's offensive to say the least; keeps filling up after bowel movements, gets painful, etc... so it's got to be taken care of.
The CRS said that basically he will "filet" the fistula - essentially creating a new fissure (UGH!) but it's the only way to get rid of it.
He said it couldn't be done in the office & that I will be put under "twilight" sleep - that part, I understand.
I would appreciate any info you can share with me about this. Thanks & have a great weekend.
