I’m still alive…

Just thought I’d mention that I’m still alive and I’m still enjoying the benefits of having a healed anus!

Also probably worth mentioning that a visitor to this blog going by the name MV posted his own fistula experience in the comments section of one of my posts, which some of you may like to read.

Update: Another visitor has posted his story aswell

Well, it’s getting there

It’s almost completely healed 🙂 I gotta tell ya, I didn’t realise it would take this long. The doctor said 4-6 weeks! anyway it’s no problem, life goes on. I’ve now stopped seeing the district nurses, which is good, because that was becoming a pain in the ass.

I see people are finding this site through google etc.. and I just want to invite you anonymous people to ask me questions if you have any. I know from my experience that there isn’t a hell of a lot of information about this shit online. All questions remain anonymous.

I went to see the doctor today and he says things are healing well. It’s been a little over a month now and the wound is still open but it’s very shallow now. I’m still driving down to see the district nurses every second day or so. Still working, shitting etc.. with no pain.

Anyway I asked the doctor for a picture he took during surgery and so without further or do… here it is (ultra graphic)

3 weeks later

It’s been 3 weeks since the surgery and things are looking good. The wound has been healing well and is now visibly smaller.

Here is a picture

One night it got really itchy and the next day the nurse decided to give me a different type of packing which is a brown colour and sortof disolves in the wound. I swear, 2 days of using this new packing and you can see the improvement.

Apparently this packing contains chemicals somehow related to silver (I didn’t listen very well) and it actively kills the bacteria in the wound…

I am also using a much smaller bandage now, I hardly even notice it.

Anyway I’m pretty happy with the way things are going. Still not in any pain when having a bowel movement or just going about my daily business. It’s a massive giant fucking weight off my shoulders.

Again, if you have a problem down there.. GO TO A DOCTOR!
