|I was operated for deep seated IR abscess in Jan'12 in Mumbai which the doc called Fistula since it had an opening on the skin.
The surgical wound took a much longer time to heal than usual.
I used to regularly followup with the doctor for 2 months but discontinued when the doc said the wound has finally come upto the skin even during which I used to see fluid coming out from the wound.
The doc said its natural way of healing the wound and is normal..I even did USG that time but no puss pockets were found.
Since then I have not been to the doctor. But off lately,The wound is still at the same state as it was 3 months back.
I still get a discharge but not much. No bleeding takes place.
Has fistula returned back?
If yes,How much would it cost for the Video assisted surgery for fistula? Since I am coming from Mumbai.
Does this surgery require staying in the hospital for more than 2 days?

You should get one fistulogram done. Fistulograms and sinograms are imaging scans used to look at a passage in the body. A fistula is an abnormal connecting tube connecting two organs, such as the bowel or bladder, or between an organ and the skin. A sinus may be your problem is an abnormal track or cavity that opens to the skin.
A fistulogram shows a fistula. The scans allow doctors to see the connecting tube or track more clearly. It uses contrast liquid, which shows up well on x-rays.
The VAAFT technique is performed for the surgical treatment of complex anal fistulas and their recurrences.
We at World Laparoscopy Hospital perform VAAFT. The key points are the correct localization of the internal fistula opening under vision, the fistula treatment from inside, and the hermetic closure of the internal opening. This technique comprises two phases: a diagnostic one and an operative one. There is no need to know the fistula classification which obviously saves time and money. Moreover, surgical wounds in the perianal region are prevented and the risk of faecal incontinence is avoided because no sphincter damages are provoked.
It will cost you approximately 75,000 rupees and you need one day stay in hospital.
