Anal Fistulotomy After Surgey

Posted , 4 users are following.

Hi guys.

I want to share my experience with people who went through the same ordeal.

I had an anal fistula for years and finally decided to undergo surgery.

I had my surgery 4 days ago done by an colorectal surgeon.

Next day I took oxycodone and had no pain but some nagging. Starting from the 3rd day every time I go to toilet I experience immense amount of pain. Just thinking about going to toilet makes me cringe. I do sitz baths recommended by my doctor and take Colace to soften my stools. Please, tell me if you had the same experience? When will it get better? I am scared. I am starting a new job in 1 week. Will I be able to start a new job with that pain. I need some advice. Thank you so much.

    I developed a fistula after hemorrhoid / fissure surgery. I had that surgery over a year ago. Now the doctor recommends surgery to repair the fistula. How did recovery go for you and how are you now?
