Perianal abscess developed after fissurectomy and spincterotomy. Suffering from infection. Have pus formation. Any suggestions?

Hi.. I had a perianal abscess that developed after having a fissurectomy and sphincterotomy.. The abscess was lanced and drained, follow up 1 week later, abscess re infected, it was lanced and drained again, I was told to follow up in 3 weeks. I go this Friday for my follow up. seems like the incision closed up and the pus is oozing from the abscess site.. How many times will this have to be lanced before it heals. I am crazy with keeping the area clean. very frustrated..

Abscess after fissure surgery is common in about 15%. Unfoetunately u are in that bracket. Clinically you have now developed a fistula in-- ano & need to get Fistulotomy surgery to cure it. Just incision & drainage of pus is not the answer.
Visit a good colorecta surgeon-pprroctologist to geyour problems sorted out once & for all.
