hi,,,,,,I had a procedure carried out 5 weeks ago to lay open an anal fistula and it seemed to be healing great for 3 weeks but since then I've had 3 (what I can best describe as ) blood blisters form. They swell and then burst discharging blood but no pus as far as I can see. Has anyone any experience of a similar thing? Been to the doc today and she says " it is part of the healing process" but I'm not convinced. Thanks

Sounds like it may be fistulas. That is how mine started.....
36 year old female. Dx'd and undx'd a few times. Was just redx'd again 04/2007.
History of rectal abscesses and fistulas (28 surgeries including abscess I & D, exploratory surgeries, 2 C-ton drains and 1 fistula plug) Count does not include self bursting abscesses.
1st Remicade infusion 6/5/07.  Lots of joint pain, and a new fistula since the 2nd infusion 6/19.
Praying I'll get better soon so we can have a baby.

yes, sometimes they just bleed and don't drain anything else....

as for "the healing process" everyone is different. My fistulas have never gone away completely, after many years.
