    Treatment

    Diagnosis

    If you consult a doctor for anal fistula, the doctor asks your medical history and examines you physically. Some of them can be easily spotted while others might need closer examination. The doctor might use his finger to examine the fluid and oozing in that region. Better consult a rectum and colon specialist for such problems as you might have to go through X-Ray and colonoscopy.

    Colonoscopy is the process where a doctor looks inside the bowels with the help of a tube with a camera attached at the end. This helps the doctor to diagnose the anal fistula.

    Fistula do not heal on their own and usually do not go away with medication. Therefore, surgery is important to treat fistula. Laser surgery for fistula is a minimally invasive procedure. The surgeon inserts the laser probe into the fistula tract, the laser destroys the fistula tissue and closes the tract. The treatment is a 30-40 minute procedure. Moreover, the period of recovery is also shorter than with conventional surgical procedures.

    In Our Doctor's Words

    What-Dr. Sanjeev Gupta-Say-About-Anal Fistula-Treatment

    Dr. Sanjeev Gupta

    MBBS, MS- General Surgeon

    25 Years Experience

    "Fistula, in general is very painful. You suffer a constant pain, irritation and smelly discharge around your anus. With time, not only your bowel movements but simple activities like sitting/ walking becomes difficult too. These days, I see not old but equally many men in middle and younger ages with similar symptoms. This is happening precisely because of today's inactive lifestyle, increasing dependence on junk food, stress and long sitting hours. The trend is dangerous. I highly encourage you have balanced, home cooked meal and walk at least thirty [30] minutes everyday. But, if a fistula has already formed, do not trust just home remedies/ OTC care. Meet a proctologist and seek proper guidance before it turns severe or risks forming infection or other anorectal diseases. Also, remember that while exercise and yoga can help in its prevention in the anorectal diseases, they will not help once the fistula has already formed. In fact, any excess movement/ or exercise during this time can cause friction, rupture, infection and way more pain than bearable. So, in my opinion, seek a proper medical attention at the earliest and let your doctor decide the best course of action."
