Treatment Of Anal Abscesses That Have Not Healed After Surgery?
Hello … I want to ask the doctor. In 2011, there was an abscess in the buttocks of the doc. Then during the surgery, but now I have not recovered, there is still fluid coming out of the former operation … what is the medicine?
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm in advance, is the liquid that comes out of your former surgery is pus or other fluids (fluids such as urine or smelly liquid)? Are there still bumps on the former operation? Are there other symptoms such as redness, swelling, pain around the scars?
If the discharge is pus, then maybe what you are experiencing is an infection of the wound. This possibility is quite small because usually the infection will eventually heal on its own and will get worse especially if left for years like you do. Another thing that might happen is the formation of fistulas in the abscess and the surgical scar. A fistula is an abnormal channel that connects two organs that are not normally connected (for example connecting the urinary tract with the digestive tract, urinary tract with the reproductive tract, urinary tract with the skin, or gastrointestinal tract with the skin). Fistula is one of the complications that often arises from an abscess.
You should do a re-examination to the surgeon for further evaluation of your surgical scar. If it is true that you are experiencing the formation of a fistula, then certain actions are needed to close the hole. The action can be a closure with a special glue or collagen plug, or it can also be carried out certain operations to close the fistula hole.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
