Fistulotomy healed externally all the way. Inside is still healing

Fistulotomy healed externally all the way. Inside is still healing a little as seen when I spread in the mirror. Small crevasse line with mostly bright red. However, where crypt starts, tissue looks more whitish. Not having pain or swelling. No hard lumps. The smallest amount of discharge (two small dots on tissue only if stuck up there to check). I'm 12 weeks post op. Is whitish tissue internally scar tissue or infection? External scar is a little hard but I do not suspect a track underneath. Thanks

Hi I had a fistulotomy two weeks ago. I was getting better but Friday I had sudden worse pain and all weekend I have had low grade fever and fatigue, plus pain in my wound and left buttock. I saw my doctor Friday and he put me on an antibiotic. The pain is better but not gone. I d say it s still pretty intense. Plus I m still tired constantly, and I m concerned. He says the wound looks ok but the discharge is thhicker than it should be. Is this something that takes a while to heal? I have missed two weeks of my job and am hesitant to miss more.

I had a fistulotomy in March. At times, it s seems like its healing until I have a big bowel movement and then it gets sore and starts draining a brownish substance. It usually last for about a day or two but this time, it seems the pain is a little more intense and has moved to other side of my butt. This is the first time I ve felt this much discomfort but usually this happens about once every two weeks.
