Hello i have a multiple opening anal fistula for 3 years but i am to much afraid to do the surgery because of the pain how painful is the post surgery?

Truth be told: many many patients of mine have commented that the post operative fistula removal period is a good deal LESS than the ongoing pain when the fistula is "full"
Hope this is helpful
