how is a fistulatomy performed
I'm having a fistulotomy done in two weeks, I'm so afraid. I don't do well with pain. When my abscess was first drain, it was terrible, very painful. two months ago I had a seton inserted, this wasn't painful at all. But my doctor tells me fistulatomy will be more painful because it will entail more cutting. Has anyone had a fistulatomy, if so, how difficult was it to do the dressing? anyone had the seton inserted before the fistulatomy, if so, how much more painful is the fistulotmy. Many thanks for your responses.
