I had my seton removed a couple of months ago. I'm assuming it is for a fistula?? If so, I will say I was pretty uncomfortable starting the day after the procedure. Often if you have anesthesia it acts as a pain killer for the first day or so. I agree with the others, I wasn't in agony, but it was painful. Is the wound you're talking about a fistula? If so, yeah, it probably looks like a hole. Mine wasn't lovely, or in a lovely spot (girl area). though, come to think of it, every time the surgeon looks at it he thinks it looks great. why thank you! oh, he means the surgical healing. no, but really, it's probably normal looking if it's a fistula. but as for the pain, if its that bad, I agree, call the doc. That's what they are there for!
