Post-operative Fistula Wound Care?
Good night doctor. Same about 6 months ago I underwent anal fistula surgery But when riding a motor vehicle still often feels back pain I may ask for advice. Is the medicine or solution to treat this former anal fistula surgery? Thank you, doctor
Hello, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com
The pain that you feel can be related to surgery in the past 6 months, namely psychogenic pain. The pain arises due to your thoughts on the history of the disease and the operations that have been undertaken. In fact, there is actually no problem with the anus and the surrounding area.
Pain that you experience may not be directly caused by previous surgery. This is because within 6 months, your wound and stitches have healed completely. Unless there is an infection that is not treated properly. If there is an infection, the wound and suture will appear to be swollen, red and ooze. Of course this will be accompanied by pain.
However, the pain that you feel can also be caused by the formation of anal fistulas. Either in the previous place or in another place. Are you experiencing complaints of bloody and slimy bowel movements? Or do you experience the same complaints as when Ani fistula before? In addition, pain can also be caused by other diseases such as hemorrhoids or hemorrhoids.
To be able to find out the real cause of the pain you are feeling, it's a good idea to consult your doctor again. So that doctors can carry out related examinations. If Ani fistula is known to be present, the doctor will find out the exact cause. So that these causes can be treated completely and the fistula does not reappear.
Meanwhile, try to relax your mind when you feel pain. Namely by taking a deep breath and then exhaling slowly, while you close your eyes. You can also sit on ice covered with cloth to reduce pain. If needed, consume over-the-counter painkillers.
Thus hopefully useful.
