approx 4 weeks ago I developed an abscess inbetween my bum cheeks, the week that followed I experienced some of the worst pain in my life with it exploding at work 3 days after starting a strong course of antibiotics at work.

after this I posted on this forum, and the replies I got advised me to seek specialist advise Whilst sharing some bad experiences, so I started preparing for the worst, and booked at private hospital.

The specialist completed an examination and I was sent for MRI, suspecting Anal Fistula, I was advised surgery could be round back psssage and depending which operation I could also require bum cheek reconstruction, The surgeon said at this stage he will 100% be operating.

The week after my MRI scan results I was called back to the hospital, after another examination and review of results the surgeon said the antibiotics appear to have cleared everything up, and there will be no need for surgery and no anal fistula was picked up on MRI results.

im back again next week for final check up, but feeling 100%, but the whole experience was confusing from start  to finish.

Wanted to post because all I could find was the negative stories, but there will be thousands of positive that don’t post.

Keep positive people :-)
