Sorry to see that the fistula is back.
Has he any other associated morbidity - like diabetes?
It is notorious for recurrence - especially if there is added bowel problem.
Proper drainage and a good antibiotic - with clean perineum and normal bowel habits - reduce the chance of recurrence.
You may try a second opinion and surgery by a different surgeon
Good luck
