I have had  surgery for an anal abcess over a year ago and I am worried that it still hasn't healed as I now seem to have a hole that wind passess through.  This is very painful and I don't know what to do to resolve the problem.

      Hi Benny, I have already had surgery about a year ago, which was between my anus and scrotum, I am now left with this problem that I can feel wind passing through it so am worried what to do about it.  I'm not in alot of pain with it just feels uncomfortable when I pass wind through it.Any suggestions?

      I used it on myself. However I didn't have what u are experiencing. U can get the turmeric powder from adds, tesco etc. and just mix the powder with some water to make a thick paste and apply to the area. It does sting for a few mintuites but it's a natural anti biotic and works well if used everyday

      As I said, you need to see a Doctor with a view towards more surgery to cut out the Fistular and close it up, there is no quick fix neutral Which country are you in (so we can work out drug availability) question smile

      My first low technology suggestion is to wash and if possible irrigate the Fistula with a salt water solution,,, man you need at least a Nurse exclaim

      Pain relief, 2 x Paracetamol 500 mg and 2 x Ibuprofen 200 mg every 4 - 6 hours (preferably after food),, no more than 8 of each a day smile
