Air entering Fistula - ouch!

I have just had a fistula open up into my anus (there's a chance it may be a boil from my hidradenitis - they are hard to tell apart). Well now when I pass gas a portion will enter the fistula via the anus. it hurts bad. I have to sit down and it forces the air back out through my anus for relief.

Now I'm afraid to fart!

Oy!! That's not fun, not fun at all. So sorry you are having this issue. The best thing to increase comfort while having a fistula is sitz baths...and lidocaine cream helps a ton. Feel better!
