Why After Pus Fistula Surgery There Is Still Pus?
I have Ani fistula surgery, but how come the pus is still on, please help
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
First of all, I want to confirm first, what type of anal fistula operation do you undergo and when is the operation performed?
If the surgery has just been done (only within 1-2 weeks) and pus and mucus out when you defecate, there are no other symptoms that you feel, then the condition can still be said to be normal. You can continue to treat surgical wounds as instructed by your doctor.
If the pus continues to come out after 2 weeks, your ex-surgery feels more painful, there is swelling and redness in the operating area, accompanied by discharge of pus or smelling liquid, then there may be an infection in your area of operation. In this case, you should immediately check yourself back at your surgeon.
If you have been operating for a long time, your fistula has had time to close (no pus came out again), but suddenly reopened in the same place, then you may experience failure to close the fistula. The type of surgery to close a fistula can vary and each type of operation has a different success rate. In this case too, you should check yourself back in with your surgeon.
