What is Recovery Like For a Fistulectomy Operation?

I just had a fistulectomy operation 3 days ago. What is the recovery like? What can I do since I am in a bit of pain? Thanks for the help!

  1. Hi ,

    1. Hi Amanda,

      Thanks for the reply. Still a bit uncomfortable of course, but better in the last few days at least 😀.

      1. I'm glad the last few days have been a bit better! We're still thinking of you!
