DBrookenz, my friend, sending my support!!
How are you. I hope things get better in the end! Looking back at our stories as you have pointed out, we are going through this ordeal in parallel time periods: I hope it's not forever!!!
At least things have improved for both of us a little bit.
I wish I could help in regards to the current issue you're facing, however I've never ever heard of a stapler operation. From what I read, the surgery you had sounds like the OTSC Proctology clip, where they clip the IO. Maybe you can ask your CRS to give you more info?
I am sure things will improve for you, they already have from what your describe.
All the best & Keep us posted. We WILL beat the Fistulas in the end.
