Hi straydog,
I agree with the others,I would definitely have this checked out by your doc.I had a similar experience last year w/my 3 yr old resection scar,& my doc's main concern was that I had a fistula.

Well,it turned out that I didn't have a fistula,but I did have an infection,so it was really good that I had it checked out.

Good luck & take care!

Definitly sounds like a fistula. They are more likely to go to an area such as an old scar since the tissue is easier to get through (I was told had I not had my scar from the surgeries this year my fistula would have been a huge internal abscess. Mine started 3 months after the last CD Sx I had. It started looking like a local abscess woud infecion like prior times then later that night feces was coming out of it. I would suggest talking to a doc before placing alcohol on it or anything besides just washing in the shower. I used hollisters wound/ostomy cleaning spray on mine while in the shower since it can be used in wounds etc .

I hope we are wrong about a fistula but get it checked out

My vote is a fistula too. I'm so sorry.

It's definitely time to call the doctor, Susie.
