My son had perianal abscess drained vis surgery 4 months
A fistula needs to be surgically corrected
Hello...thank you for consulting here.
A fistula needs to be surgically corrected.
Occasional discharge need not be worried about unless there is fever and swelling in the area which signifies bacterial infection.
By what you say I feel that the treatment plan is going according to protocol and with MRI the surgeon will know the extent of fistula internally and they will be able to completely excise it and close the fistula and wound.

Suggestions on fistula
Hi... sorry for the late reply.
Usually fistulas are long standing and it is the natural history of the disease of this particular condition.
Please do not get worried that if you leave the issue it is good to go more deeper, it is not so.
Fistula does not spread internally that fast it is a very very slow growing tract.
