Perirectal Abscess Surgery Recovery
I have a wound from a perirectal abscess surgery that has fully healed after nearly 3 months. What could be wrong? What can be done to help healing?
Seton takes time: To cut through, may take 8 Wks or little more, is very good technique, less chance of recurrence, and flatus incontinence
Hii. I just finish the anal fistula surgery. Now there is a tunnel between rectum and drainage of abscess. How to recovery the opening in rectum?
See your MD: There is a complication from your surgery that needs to be corrected. A fistula can be repaired and should be addressed by your surgeon.
Can be rough: Can take a couple of weeks to heal and be pretty sore until then. But I'm sure you felt a lot better from getting that abscess drained!
I have a vulvar abscess I believe. It hurts when laying down, standing and sitting. I don't want surgery is there another way to make it go away?

Abscess: Abscesses need to be open to heal. May need to remove the cyst wall. Consider washing w/ antibacterial 'hibiclens' 1-2 x/ week to prevent bacteria build up. Wash 2x a day in summer, keep pores open. Change position every 30 min for 1-2 min. Pilonidal cyst needs more definitive surgery f/w/doc http://www. Mayoclinic. Org/diseases-conditions/pilonidal-cyst/basics/prevention/con-20025007
Depends: If there is an abscess, your surgeon may simply incise (cut into) and drain the area. Otherwise, your surgeon may try to excise or remove the sinus tract by taking out an ellipse of tissue. You may have an open wound if there is a lot of infection. Expect to be taking some pain medications afterwards, but to be feeling better overall.
Maybe: If the gland becomes infected again, then incision and drainage is appropriate.
Superfast healing: The real question is what not to do that slows down healing. Avoid using alcohol, peroxide, hibiclens, betadine, and bleach solutions. Inflammation (red, hot, swollen, tender) is important to healing so anti-inflammatories (motrin, advil) are bad. Cover the area with a clean dressing changed every other day and protected from trauma. Antibiotics do not help healing unless it is truly infected.
Fistula abscess surgery cant take the pain anymore 10 days after surgery no medic or drug help me I want tu suscide cant take it please help?
Call: Call your doc. This is a painful surgery. Ask what they suggest. If necessary. Go to ER, especially if suicidal thoughts.
Hello, I was hospitalized July 16, 2017 with a tear and abscess, after treatment all cleared up only to have another attack. Considering surgery?
More info please: Where was the tear and the abscess? Attack of what? Do you know what the actual diagnosis was? Please resubmit with clarifying info.
I had the surgery already but I have pilonidal disease. No abscess now, but the area hurts bad? Had 1 abscess 6 months ago. Surgery was 4 years ago
See doctor ASAP: There are several possibilities including recurrence of the abscess, slowly progressive infection of the underlying bone, some inflammation or scarring from prior inflammation pressing on a nerve root, etc. You need to be seen by a doctor and re-evaluated and suggest that this be done before whatever this is becomes much worse. Good luck.
Minor procedure: Done under local and IV sedation and curitive in 80% of the cases
Not usually: I suggest you see your surgeon, and discuss your discomfort. That's a bit long to still be uncomfortable, though that is a broad term. Call your surgeon and make an appointment. Good luck.
I am suffering buttock abscess since 2009, I had have surgery but I still not recover, suggest me what should I do?
Need to see surgeon: You may have most likely anal fistula, less likely pilonidal sinus, both need surgical intervention, see your surgeon to find the cause and treatment.
