Hi Emil, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
Anal fistula is a condition in which there is an abnormal channel that connects the anal canal to the skin near the anus. This anal fistula often gives symptoms such as:
Discharge of fecal material (can be accompanied by blood or pus) from the fistula hole Pain in the area around the anus and groin, worsening when sitting, irritation of the skin around the anus (skin becomes red, swollen, painful, and feels warm) constipation or pain during bowel movements fever Symptoms You are experiencing at this time is one of the symptoms that is most likely related to the symptoms of your anal fistula. Therefore, to handle it, you should immediately consult with your surgeon for planning your fistula closure. Fistula closure actually does not always have to be done by surgery. However, other available methods (fibrin glue and a bioprosthetic plug) only provide a temporary solution and the fistula may reopen after a few months.
We recommend that you discuss again with your surgeon to plan a fistula closure operation so that the symptoms you experience do not recur. Meanwhile, to reduce the swelling that you are currently experiencing, you can try to do a sitz bath, which is to soak the swollen area with warm water for 15-20 minutes several times a day to reduce the pain and inflammation. If pain is bothersome, you can also take medications such as Paracetamol to help reduce the pain.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
