When I was too weak to sit in the tub for fear of not being able to get back out I would take a femanine pad(my fistula was recto/vag) and wet it down with a little water so that it was wet but not dripping and then sit on a covered heating pad. I got the moist heat of a sitz bath and could lay down in bed or chair and it worked great!!
