Last November i had a huge abscess in the perinanal region ,it one of the most painful experiences of my life . This developed into a fistula that was relatively high and passed through quite a large preportion of the sphincter muscle so my consultant couldn't perform a fistulotomy and instead inserted a drainage seton . It really hindered my life and what made it worse was that I couldn't find many success stories online that it would even get better (just hundreds of people saying how long they have had the condition for and it wasn't improving) I am very active and like to excersise every day but with the seton it was very tricky indeed (but not impossible) anyway I promised myself that as soon as I was fixed I would post on this board and here I am ! After the drainage seton was removed it was replaced with a Cutting seton which cut through within 7 days and voila ! It was fixed . The whole process took 9 months and it was a long drawn out affair but I'm pleased I am out the other side ! Anyway I just wanted to share to give people hope that it is quite common for it all to be ok and time and a good consultant is all that it takes
