Ok I kind of fell stupid writing this, b/c I guess I should have asked my surgeon more questions but I'm really confused and need some answers and help.
I've been diagnosed with crohns for about 4 years now and have had problems with perianal abcesses. about 3 years ago they made a fistual to drain the abcess that closed and they did it again. I then was supposed to wait and have more suregery bt I went ahead and had a baby. I had my son just over a year ago and have been waiting for a surgery to fix tihis stupid draining fistula. Got a call and went in last Thursday for surgery. I think what he said he did was seton placement and there would be silk that he woudl tighten. This is where I'm lost..... if he is tightening a silk string am I supposed to have a string hanging out of the fistual hole????
Somebody please help me answer this, my surgeon is away until nest week sometime and no one at his office can seem to answer my questions. I'm kind of starting to freak out!!!!
