How To Deal With An Anal Fistula That Doesn’t Heal?
My husband was diagnosed with fistula ani, already on 5thn, 2x surgery just to relieve his abscess. 2 surgeons expressed stress dealing with this. Now my husband can’t walk, because the abscess is located below the testicles. Another place also drained pus continuously during 5thn, around the anus. Please me, want to solve the root of the problem, where is there, and how is it done?
Anal fistula is a small hole between the large intestine and the surface of the skin around the anus. This burrow is formed due to an infection around the anus which causes pus to collect which then triggers the appearance of a pocket / lump which then when it bursts will find a way out of the pus. Anal fistulas can be triggered by conditions related to colon problems such as Chron's disease, diverticulitis, complications after colon surgery and colon cancer.
Anal fistula handling is indeed with action. Actions can be done in several methods, depending on the patient's medical condition.
The method of action used should also be evaluated to find the cause of recurring and painful fistula ani that causes your husband to have difficulty walking.
It is also necessary to determine the causes that trigger recurrent anal fistulas. Conditions that trigger recurrent anal fistulas must also be treated thoroughly.
These things need to be analyzed by the surgeon. The doctor will carry out the stages of medical examinations and supporting examinations needed to determine the complete treatment.
While at home, you can suggest the following treatments:
Soak in warm, clean water for 15 to 20 minutes, 3 to 4 times a day. Keep the butt area clean by changing your underwear more often and keeping it dry. Consume adequate fiber from foods, fruits and vegetables. Also consume drinking water in sufficient quantities. Avoid consuming coffee because it can trigger diarrhea. Using special pants to support the buttocks area when sitting.
