I had two perianal abcesses drained at the start of the year, intially it was incredibly painful and
when the nurses changed the wound packing and bandage every day it was the most painful thing I have ever
had to endure but after a week or two it began to get less painful.
I had one abcess which was very small and only left a small wound, this has now just recently
closed up, the other one is almost there as well so it had taken nearly two months to get to this
, the nurse I see regularly seemed impressed by the speed it closed up and she seemed to
think it was down to my diet.
Keep the wound ultra clean and make sure the bandage is changed regularly, it can be a bit of
a pain at times as it can sometimes interfere with your daily life but again it is important that
it is changed regularly, also make sure that the nurse cleans the area around the wound before
putting the bandage on.
