Hello. Not knowing any details, I think that you should be seeing a gastroenterologist, a general surgeon and a gynaecologist for further opinions. There are many possibilities but a curative surgery should be available if you have the drive to persevere until you find the mist competent doctors. Don't take no for an answer.

This is my first day on this site and your title startled me. I too had anal fistulas. Everytime I'd have a surgery another one would form. I just couldn't heal, like you. Trust me, I know the pain you are going through and the loss of your loved one. I had a 3 yr relationship dissolve because of my problems.

The docs thought I had Chrohns Disease and thats why I wouldn't heal. They could never determine this for sure. I was on all kinds of drugs for infections, including Flagyl, which caused me to lose 40pds in 3 mos.

They finally ended up performing a colostomy. They felt this would allow the area time to completely heal. I had it in place for 9 months. By then, I was completely healed and they did a reversal.

I was in my 20's when this happened and I went through 7 surgeries in 2 years. I'm now 54, and thank goodness, I've never had a problem since.

Never stop searching for answers. I wish you the best.

My procedures were done in dallas, tx. I had a great gyno doc, he referred me to a specialist who specialized in this area. Good luck finding a good doctor.
Let me know how you do, ok and my prayers are going out to you.
