So I had a perianal abscess, boo :( The doctor decided to cut and drain it and then she laid it open to clean the abscess out. It didn't develop into a fistula yet, but I went to get surgery anyway to clean out the infection and lay it open (similar to a fistulotomy)
I healed pretty well, that was 3.5 months ago EXCEPT there is a small cavern which is discharging slipper clear (yellow tinge but not ***** yellow, clear) liquid. The doctor looked at it again 1.5 weeks ago and said "i was healing weird". She poked around and said she wants to prevent a fistula from happening so she granulized the area with a poker and then put this burning silver thing on it. I think she wants to restart the healing process.
Now, I have a little tunnel/cavern, the same size as before (she said it wasn't a fistula) and it is still now and then showing a little clear sticky/slipper liquid. It doesn't stain my clothes but if I put toilet paper on it, i can see it.
What is this? Is this from the anal crypts? Or is this "healing fluids"? Should I worry? Thank you.
