Oooh, that's so discouraging, isn't it?

Good luck getting in contact with the doctors. Please do let us know what they say.

Sorry. I'm guessing this is the last thing you want to deal with today.

Still smiling............. and waiting for a call, my Gp has had a look this morning he said it all looks clean and healthy and if I don't hear back from the surgeon today, he will chase them tomorrow.

Sorry that happened! The good news is it is not an emergency. But clearly they need to give you a new one quickly. Let me know what color it is!

Ok, so surgery has been scheduled for the 4th of August.

The seton that fell out was supposes to be a cutting seton, and therefrore tight, at no point when I looked at it post op did it look tight, so probably a good job it fell out or it would have just been sat there doing nothing for 6 weeks.

He said that he didn't touch the 2nd fistula on the right because they couldn't find anything, however when he stared fiddling this morning I nearly hit the ceiling, so he intends to sort that out at the same time as inserting the new seton.

Now comes the real toe curling part, I'm scheduled to be operated on in a different theatre from last time. Unfortunately this is where I work, in the recovery unit...........so lots of people I sit down to lunch with, getting a good look at where my lunch will come out!

I'm glad you have the procedure scheduled. Sounds like the second fistula is a problem and needs to be dealt with now. I would think they will give you a course of flagyl or another strong antibiotic to tackle the infection.

Do they understand how uncomfortable it will be for you to use that theatre? Can't they move you??

Yikes! My sympathies.

I'm with f/c - can't you be moved?

If can be done elsewhere but that will mean a 6 week wait, he seem quite concerned about getting the seton back in.
I'll just have to make it clear that I don't want any unnecessary personnel in there.
My mum always said to me that once you've had a baby you lose all of your dignity and you don't care who sees what, I haven't had a baby, but this seem to be having the same effect. However how I feel on the morning of the surgery may be a different matter!
And again no mention of anti-biotics.
