cry  Hi,
I now have the silk seton..and after the second surgery in one month..including draining and fistulectomy...shortening of my fistula tract(painful) the abscess is gone..my seton is more comfortable..but i still have the same pain...that i complained to my colon rectal surgeon about pretty much almost everyday. I have been in his office just about every single week. I have found...because i am bleeding from that area...during bowel movements and pretty much all day long...a small tear (fissure) that is below the anus...way inside (you have to actually pull apart the area and use a flashlight to see it and a mirror)..its about a 1/4 of an inch long..and very painful..spasms, pain so bad that i cry like a baby...this is the pain that i have complained about to my surgeon. He couldn't find out what was wrong...but i did..and unfortunately..it is exactly where the seton lays...and i have to say prior to all this exploratory anal surgey and setons..i never had this tear.. After being allergic to the rubber in the first seton...which was same reaction i get to latex...horrible painful to the point where my skin broke down and bled. I strongly believe that the setons have caused this problem. Yesterday..i spend from about 3am to about 10am having bloody diarrhea..i am approved for Remicade and now have decided even though it has side effects..i will take it...because i can't live my life in pain and bleeding all the time...its ruining my life and i am depressed. I called my colon rectal surgeon spoke to the doctor on call...and they won't call in a cream for me. I know their are creams out their with blood pressure medication to increase blood flow and with lidocaine to numb it. They want me to go in to their office again...to prove that i am not lying about having this problem. I am tired..i am in pain..i am really sad and cry just about every single day. I don't feel like my Surgeon cares about me..i find him to have a huge ego..and since i am having problems..i feel that he dislikes me. I don't want to bother him..but i don't feel better as time goes on...i just get worse. So i am now calling my primary care doctor..and then i will call my GI..to see who can help me...i am sure Remicade will help..but since my primary care doctor resched..my TB test a million times..i now have to wait..once again. I am desperate..please any advice..i have tried sitz baths, vaseline, a&d ointment, bag balm, aleve, ibuprofen, tylenol, desitin, hemorroid cream with pain reliever, antibiotic cream with pain reliever, still nothing works. I am getting angry and i feel like maybe i need to start switching my surgeon..to someone else...who thinks this is a good idea..please let me know. I am tired of them giving me these stupid narcotics..that make you constipated..i don't like feeling drunk...i don't want to take them...they screw up with my GI tract...and make the problem worse..please please please help me if you can..i am desperate..thank you

another part of the frustration is ....we have financial problems and my husband needs to work OT and we just can't keep spending our lives running to appts..only for on one to help me and go home the same as i came..
