You would think that having your arsehole removed would stop anything going in and coming out of it, but oh no I am left with a perineal sinus that is such a massive nuisance. The other thing that is annoying is the fact that because I can function near normally I am put on the back burner by the medical profession.
I don’t mean to moan, ok I do, I understand that many people are very sick and need urgent care, which I was one of them last year, but if an operation leaves someone with a drop in their quality of life then please don’t leave me for 8 months in that condition. I didn’t even know that a sinus could form let alone know that I might be a good candidate for it. ( I had a rectal stump blowout which caused pelvic sepsis). Could it even cause more serious issues if left? I am left with this constant drip drip which I am sure you can imagine is not much fun. You get very sore and constantly aware of that wetness, not nice when you are trying to get on with life.
My appointment is in two weeks ( fingers crossed that it doesn’t get cancelled again) and I cannot wait. I know something needs doing but I also know that I will again have to wait.
