Jan 29, 2012 · Anal fistula in Just Want to Talk

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.

Jan 28, 2012 · Anal fistula in Just Want to Talk

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.
