Has anyone had a LIFT procedure for an anal fistula? My surgeon plans on doing one in 6-8 weeks and I'm wondering what to expect. I had a perirectal abscess drained 12/4/11. Abscess drained and seton placed 12/28/11. Placement of fistula plug 2/1/12 (failed). Going 3/2/12 for EUA with partial fistulotomy and placement of seton. Several rounds of flagyl and cipro. It's been a long, painful few months.
