I have fistula in ano. is it possible to heal it without surgery? are there any diet which could hasten the healing process or any topical meds?

Dont ignore: Fistula in anu could be a sign of an underlying disease such as crohn's. I suggest an evaluation by a gastroenterologist rather than just a bandaid approach to the fistula. You want a full thorough evaluation of th causes.
