I had a perianal abscess about two months ago and had to have surgery. Now two days ago I found out I had two of them in the same spot and they had cut me above the other scar and this time they didn't pack it and it doesn't hurt but theres a hard knot and I don't know if it's from my scar or if it's from themy two I just had drained.

    Hello

    I would give your CRS a call. Hopefully they or your GP can see you and let you know what is going on back there. Hope you are better soon.

    Right above the healed incision area...yes I have had that before. I was worried it was back but it was scar tissue and softened. On another occasion it was an abscess right below the last incision. If they don't go deep enough and open the pockets within the abscess they can come back fairly close to the one before..hopefully not in your case. I'm having surgery coming up to remove the sweat glands in a certain area in hopes to lessen mine which seem to be 1-3x per month now. rolleyes

      Hello

      Have you seen the perianal abscess organisation or joined the Fb Fistula Support Group (Colorectal). If not these might be of use to you. 

      Hope you are better soon.

      I too think I may have hard scar tissue which I have been praying is not the fistula. I am still praying my problem dries up and goes away!!

      I am so sorry to hear you are having what flare ups 3 times per month?
