1 week after my anal fistula was removed.

Can anyone give me some advice.

I have never had an open wet wound before. Everything seems to be healing ok. Ive not had huge amounts of leakadge or anything just a little bit. Its does hurt to sit in certain positions but i guess thats normal.

I just want know what its meant to be looking like.
I have a warm bath twice a day with just water and i keep it dry and clean at all times. I see a little bit of white discharge but nothing i feel i should be worrying about. I also take antibiotics twice a day as well as anti inflammatories 3 times a day. And pain killers to help with the pain.

Any advice would be great,

Thanks in advance

Moscow,

I am not sure what you mean by having your fistula removed. There are several different procedures for fistula. I had a cutting seton/partial fistulotomy. Then approx 10 weeks later I had completion fistulotomy. Pain, drainage, lots of sitz baths seem to be the norm. (at least for me). I think some CRS's use draining setons to allow for any "sepsis" of the area to drain and then later perform another procedure to actually fix the fistula.. like an advancement flap or two stage fistulotomy.

Re: 1 week after my anal fistula was removed.

Hi moscow ,
Im One week into multiple procedure inc laid open fistula .
I also got cavity packed and seton fitted .

As for the open wound of laid open one ,
I find it stingy , I just stopped metronidazole antibiotic ( strong ab that kills bugs that don't need oxygen )
I have area covered with clavinol barrier spray which as name says protects against contamination for 72 hrs flavinol forte gel was also used it absorbs bugs realeses anti bacteria as far as I'm aware .

No sitz baths , normal showers dressings changed daily but as I say I've few things going on
And everyone's different ,
Hope that helps .

Stay well .

Hi lou ,
Think it depends whether fistula is high or low ,
Low fistula laid open if under 30% of muscle is involved
If high bio plugs or flap is used .
I'm in UK so maybe procedures are different
I'm unsure what mine is nobody has mentioned except to say next surgery is lay open
( possible chance of some incontinence , oh joy of joys .
I got morphine tabs for pain anti inflammatories, paracetamol .

My next surgery is to lay open fistula with seton in that's in sept all going well ,
Seton still draining tiny amounts, packing not reduced in size since op and still
Mucky ,
Guess this has to clear before any more surgery .

Stay well .
