I had a seton fistulotomy on the 15th of july, the seton fell out on the 22nd. The surgeon seemed quite concerned that it neded to go back in and he
I thought that he had also missed a fistula on the opposite side.
So I went in for a further EUA ?proceed yesterday. The original fistulotomy is healing nicely and apparently the seton has done its job and did not need to go back in, he still can not find anything on the opppsite side. I know something is going on there, but if he can't find it then it has to be left be until it starts misbehaving again (it popped 5 weeks ago, lots of pain and pus).
I am however feeling more comfortable than I have i a long time. The only thing that is making me feel grotty is the strict low residue diet I've been given by the dietician....really missing the fruit and veg, but it's only been a week and it seems to be helping.
They've signed me off work for a week because of the open wound (probably shouldn't have gone back last week...oops!)
Hope everyone is well. x
