I had a perianal abscess drained on June 2nd, almost three months ago. As some of you might know surgeon left and opening for drainage, I had to do that for 2 weeks, and final the catheter type hose for drainage got taken out and I was left to insert a gauze and do sitz baths twice a day. The huge wound halfway closed really fast, in just 1 month I was back to work, but I still had a little open wound, but it wasn't hurting and I could final sit down. It was as if I had scrapped myself in the bottoms (well next to the anus). It has been two months and that tiny (almost size of a Qtip) cut won't heal.
Any past or present healing experiences and advise would be appreciated, this is so hard, and I've already gone to the doctor and he said if it doesn't heal by October it might be a fistula. Which I pray not. But I still have 1 month of hope, so really wanted to hear any experiences or things that you might have done to help your healing process.
Thank you all, God bless.
