Can fistula re-occur at same place by just one episode of constipation ?

Can fistula re-occur at same place by just one episode of constipation? Age: 35 Gender : Female I had a Fistula surgery in April 08. The healing went of well and there was no problem for the last few months. 2 weeks back I had an episode of severe constipation, where I had to apply lot of pressure to pass stool. Since the pass few days my area which had healed is again paining. I think there was a mild fissue, as I would feel pain on passing stool. I took sitz bath regularly, and the pain on passing sttols is over. Problem: I still feel pain (more of discomfort than pain) while sitting on the area that had healed during last surgery. Question Can fistula re-occur at same place by just one episode of constipation? Will this discomfort become ok after some days....for should I see a doctor immediately.

Fistula does not recur by one episode of constipation.Most probably the pain at the anal verge and the discomfort at the site of surgery are both due to the fissure, which should heal if U avoid constipation and apply some soothing ointment. But dont U think it is best to seek direct consultation with your surgeon.

Hi, I am just a bit concerned, I suffer from constant constipation and experience a small amount of blood after each movement, I have been checked for hemaroids before and there have been found to be none present. Tonight I had a rather painful stool and I ended up with quite a lot of blood present, three to four tablespoons worth. This has never happened before, I have been suffering from terrible adominal cramps and pain for the past six weeks especially before and after a bowel movement. I have also been feeling quite lethargic and rundown and have been nauseaous for months now when it comes to food. I thought I had a stomach bug but am starting to think it may be something else. Can you help me with any advice please?
