Scott, the pain related to that fistula is completely gone along with - most of - the bump - abscess. But it never pointed - bursted - on the skin/bun side...Could it have just dried out on the inside? Is that typical? I can still feel a small bump but it used to be at least 1" if not 2" wide before it shrank. I can also still feel the fistula track which shouldn't go away on its own. Correct? Can I live with a fistulae without a surgery?
I have an appointment with a colorectal surgeon in a couple of days. So I'll know more but wanted to see if anyone has had the same experience and if anybody is living with a fistulae without having had a surgery performed.
