    I've dealing with this for about 4 months, last week it created an abscess, I went to a surgeon, and she opened the sinus , removed everything inside and cauterize the sinus wall. she did't removed the sinus at all. just left open. I only feel pain when my mom is cleanin it and making the bandage. Should I be worried about the recurring.

    Guys, i'm really scared to poop, right now, because the incision is really close to my anus.

    Hopefully you are on some stool softners. If not, you probably should. Just don't push and force it, just let it happen.

    Yeah good suggestion on stool softeners, but not a laxative like they gave me at one stage... or you will wipe your bum red raw ;>
    Don't hold onto it... it's toxic... and it's only going to get bigger and badder ;> Everyone has the same fear.

    Most people's experience here will say yes.... it will most likely re-occur. It's only been an incision and drainage (I&D).

    Fun isn't it!!! oh well things could be worse.

    Stool softeners will help. Just relax. You didn't have surgery. You just had the lancing/I&D. You'll probably need a surgery soon following. Follow up with a rectal surgeon if you already haven't. I had surgery 7 weeks ago (closed excision) and even now whenever I have to really go #2 my incision feels so weird. And my incision is higher up. Funny how all that is connected. Best wishes to you with this journey. It's no fun.

    I'm not feeling pain or anything, but when this complete healing I'll have the surgery. I canĀ“t deal with that pain.

    I don't blame you. The surgery is much easier than the I&D.

    Yes. You just got it lanced so basically try to avoid sitting for a long period of time with bad posture.
