It was scary when I first got my abscess my GP said it is the size of a golfball, it appeared in a week!! Then I was on strong antibiotics for three days before emergency surgery, then I had the wound packed every other day for 4 weeks, It healed too quick on the outside so i was left ith a 5mm pocket so had to have it reopened and they made the incision bigger though there was no infection. It was packed everyday then for the next six weeks,, now a year later, i have a small hole right in the middle of the incision wound and a small hemorrhoid like lump right on my bottom. Think it's a fistula. sooooooo worried about incontinence. Read that they stick a probe through the fistula to perform the surgery - it sounds brutal and barbaric and what if the probe causes a false tunnel? Does the seton hurt? will waste come out through the seton and surely a big wound in your bottom is dangerous with lots of germs about.. I'm rather worried to say the least.
I'd be devastated to be incontinent, I'd never go out
