Hello. I'm suffering from an anal fistula, going to the rectal surgeon Tuesday. I'm just barely healed from my 3rd perianal abscess, last two times required a wound vac and month off work. Last ER incision, the surgeon (same from last summer) said he could visually see a fistula...so now on to take care of that, probably a seton...Ive been reading some of the other experiences here and am feeling encouraged. I did quit smoking last year, but still don't have very good diet, change is hard! I hate that I have to tell my boss I'm sick without giving the embarrassing details, just a "lower intestine infection", not to mention my low productivity, not good being a single mom...pretty dreadful. Hopefully this next surgery to remove the fistula will be the last. Has anyone had the seton...and was it successful? How was it??
