'and alumina)..'
Where does this Alumina come from? Who prescribed Alumina?
nawazkhan last decade
Oh no. I believe i obtained the incorrect item. I asked for alumen and got alumina. This is what i have been taking:
last 4 days:
calendula - 4 pellets, 1x/day in am
alumina 30 C (INCORRECT) - 4 pellets, 1x/day in am
berberis vulguaris 11 pellets, 4x/day

I am on my last day of menstruation and will be prepared to start tomorrow. Please advise if I should go back on your prescription (replacing alumina with alumen 30c)?

The good news it the abscess is shrinking tremendously from 1 week ago. You have been an absolute blessing and believe that once i take the correct Alumen, I will make even more positive gains.

'if I should go back on your prescription (replacing alumina with alumen 30c)?'
Yes, you must.

'The good news it the abscess is shrinking tremendously from 1 week ago.'
But, please be patient with this bad guy. It reappears without any notice. Your stress, exertion, food items, constipation, drinks and many other factors lead to reoccur.
nawazkhan last decade
thank-you - good reminder to be patient and prevent/manage factors listed.

Do I take Berberis Vulg - starting at 11 am or upon waking?
and no food or drink 45 before OR after?

here's the summary:
calendula - 4 pellets, 1x/day in am
alumen 30 C- 4 pellets, 1x/day in am
berberis vulguaris 11 pellets, 4x/day - upon waking or start at 11 am?
Lemifi last decade
'Do I take Berberis Vulg - ..'
Never Never during period.

Please do not take any remedy at this time. Let the mother nature's process complete smoothly.

More prayers for you.

a very small amount of clear pus, overall abscess is significantly smaller - no pain
Lemifi last decade

So, there is no bleeding at all?
nawazkhan last decade
'a very small amount of clear pus'
What is the exact color of pus?
nawazkhan last decade
no bleeding at all

the pus is a light pink color (and a very small amount coming out)
The abscess feels like it is half the size since we started. (fyi)

1. ID: saadbutt
2. Age: 36
3. Sex: male
4. Marital Status: married
5. Weight: 230lbs
6. Height: 6ft
7. Country: USA
8. Climate: Currently very nice, neither hot nor cold
9. List of your complaints: I am suffering from Anal fistula. The Colorectal surgeon categorized it as superficial fistula
10. Since how long are you suffering from each complaint? : 40 days
11. Diabetic or non-Diabetic: non-Diabetic
12. Desire sweets/sour/salt: Mostly salt but sweet 1-2 times a day
13. Thirst: I drink a lot of water, in current weather about 3-4 liters a day.
14. Tongue and Taste: Normal
15. Current BP (without medicine and with medicine): Normal

16. What exactly is happening?
I believe this all started with a hard stool and it started itching in/around rectum area for about 7-8 days before an abscess appeared at 6 o clock outside the rectum opening. I was in severe pain for 3-4 days and then it busted. I felt better for about 2 days and then the pus and fecal matter started building up again. I was again in pain for 2 days and then it busted and drained. I went to colorectal surgeon; he cut open the outer opening and drained it. I was better for a week or so in terms that I didn’t feel a lot of pain but now I feel pain for past 2 weeks and the cycle continues every day. What happens every day now is that after bowel movement the fecal matter goes into fistula cavity and I am in pain for 5-6 hours and then it drains and then I start feeling better rest of the day. The next day same thing happens over and over again. The outer abscess is like a tear drop and swells after bowel movement but it’s not very big. My observation is that mostly fecal matter comes out of rectum opening 5-6 hours after bowel movement. The outer opening has a pin sized hole so I doubt anything could come out of it except liquid but I could be wrong. I also think I don’t have a lot of puss but some yellowish matter comes out after the fecal matter drains. It keeps draining for another 2-3 hours after the fecal matter comes out.

17. How do you feel?
For 5-6 hours every day I can’t move or sit. Sitz bath does not help so I have stopped taking it because I feel more pain and it feels like the fistula is opening more and nothing comes out of the fistula during sitz bath. It only comes out after the 5-6 hour of bowel movement.

18. How does this affect you?
I am unable to carry out my regular work and I am now working from home.

19. How does it feel like?
It feels like something is stuck in my rectum and it limits my movements and everyday activity.

20. What comes to your mind?
Sometimes very frustrated and mostly angry during 5-6 hours cycle.

21. One situation that had a big effect on you? Nothing special
22. How did that feel like? n/a
23. What sensation do you experience in that situation? n/a
24. What are you showing by that gesture of your hand (Habits or Actions)? n/a
25. Current medicines you are taking? none
26. Family Background? Educated middle class family, nothing in particular
27. Educational Qualifications of the patient? Bachelors
28. Nature of work, what do you do for living? IT Manager
29. Desires, likes and dislikes for food? Nothing in particular but like meat more
30. Name of foods which increase your problem?
Haven’t noticed anything in particular, my situation stays the same with all foods but I try to avoid spicy food but I think it doesn’t make much difference in my situation.

31. Mind-behavior, anger, irritability, hurry, impatient…and so on.. How are you different from other persons, public speaking or not , you can describe all of the details about your behavior, love and affections?
Depending on situation I could be angry, impatient and aggressive. Not very friendly or public figure but I am loving and affectionate to family and close friends.

32. Aggravation (increases-time, season,)& Amelioration (Decreases)
Could be a minor thing like my stuff not in place, children making noise etc.

33. Attached here your photographs of the affected area. (if required/optional)
34. Location of the disease: Rectum area
35. Side of the problem (Right or Left), (Upper or Lower part of body): I feel pain on the left side.

36. Color of the secretions/discharges e.g urine, stool, sputum, Saliva etc.
Initially fecal matter comes out 5-6 hours of bowel movement. This lasts for not more than 30 minutes. The quantity is not a lot, it’s hardly half teaspoon or 2ml. Then yellowish matter comes out which I think is also liquid form of feces or it could be pus and fecal matter combined. This continues for 2-3 hours. Then at night a different type of secretion starts. It’s light greenish yellow stuff. It’s granular.

In order to find out that what miasm are you currently in, please answer the following Q's?

1. Please tell us about your pain, if any? How much is the pain and where?
Severe pain in rectum area after bowel movement for 5-6 hours.

2. Is there any pus coming from anywhere in your body and it's color, quantity and thickness? The color may be yellow, light yellow, brown, dark brown, greenish, white and watery.
See answer 36

3. What is the color of your discharges, if any?
See answer 36

4. How about the blood discharges, if any? Please describe the color of blood and its thickness?
Sometimes red color matter also comes after the fecal matter discharge. It’s not pure blood but light red stuff like you get when the wound is healing.

5. Please tell me about your constipation?
I think it started in Ramadan due to low fiber diet. I had a hard stool and I pushed hard too but nothing happened at that time. I had itching in and around rectum area for 7-8 days before external abscess showed up.

6. How about the itching and burning in detail, if any?
I can’t move around for 5-6 hours of bowel movement due to tightening in and around rectum area for 5-6 hours after bowel movement.

7. How is your energy level and state of mind other than the one you already described?
I am fine otherwise.

8. Any other issues right now and in the past other than the one you have already described?

9. What are you taking at the moment (homoeopathic and allopathic) on daily basis?

10. Any other additional information that you would like to mention that might be helpful?
It has been about 18 days since colorectal surgeon operated the outer abscess. I was feeling better during the first week because fistula was draining well but for past 1 week I am again in pain. I visited him on Friday and he said that it has improved so we should give it 2 more weeks to heal. He said it’s a fifty fifty chance that it might not heal. If it doesn’t heal then he has suggested that he will now need to operate the inner side of fistula as well as outside. Not sure if I understood him correctly but he probably wants to open and clean the whole thing now. I am reluctant on doing this. Please advise.

Dear Nawaz, just posted above with details of what you had asked. Can you please respond with your suggestions and diagnosis? If you suggest any medicine can you please tell me how long would it take for this to heal. Please also tell me from where can I get these in NY or NJ (USA)
saadbutt last decade
'I am ready and back on treatments
calendula - 4 pellets, 1x/day in am

alumen 30 C- 4 pellets, 1x/day in am (waiting on these to arrive)

berberis vulguaris 11 pellets, 4x/day - upon waking or start at 11 am'
Yes, please go ahead. But BV, 11 pellets only 1 time a day now.

More prayers for you Lemifi.
nawazkhan last decade
Hi saadbutt, May Allah Bless You.

Please take Staphysagria 200C, 4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water, 1 time a day, for 3 days.

Also, take Ruta 200C, 4 drops mixed in 2 sips of mineral water, 1 time a day, when you get up in the morning, for 3 days.

Down the road, you will be needing the following remedies.
Alumen 30C
Berberis Vulgaris 1x
Hypericum 200C
Calendula 200C

Many prayers for your speedy recovery.
nawazkhan last decade
Thank you
Does it matter what time I take BV?

Let me know if there are any remedies I should order for future

Upon waking a few bright red drops from abscess, no sign of pus
Lemifi last decade
'Upon waking a few bright red drops from abscess'
Good Sign as the blood is flowing in that area now.

'Does it matter what time I take BV? '
The best time is at least 45 minutes after breakfast.

More prayers.....
nawazkhan last decade
Dear Nawaz,
Thank you for suggesting these remedies. I was going to order the first 2 remedies you prescribed but I wanted to find out if I definitely need the other 4 remedies down the road then I can order them all together to save time. Can you please confirm their dosage so that I can order accordingly. If a gap of 4-5 days between courses is ok then I will order them separately when needed.
Also, I wanted to find out how long would these course be? What happens after the first round of remedies? I see you only suggested it for 3 days. How long would be the 2nd course and how soon can I expect some results and how long will it take to fully heal?
My problem right now is that the inner portion of the fistula opens up every day after the bowel movement. Will these remedies close the inner side fast enough (12-14 hours)?

Dear saadbutt,

Please see a good doctor, face to face.

Good luck.
nawazkhan last decade
Dear Nawaz,

Do you think my case is complicated? Will these remedies not help me? I am already seeing a Colorectal specialist. Do you want me to see a homeopathy doctor? Can you recommend one in NY or NJ area?
I'd really appreciate if you could help me in my situation and suggest remedies so that I don't have to go through another surgical procedure.
saadbutt last decade
'Do you want me to see a homeopathy doctor?'
Yes, this will be a good choice, in my considered opinion.

Lemifi last decade
so sorry, clicked on send early!
I wanted to give you an update. The abscess is almost gone! I still had 2 very very small drops of light yellow pus and 1 small drop this am. Again very very small amount.
I have decreased BV to 11pellets/day and Calendula same at 4/day
I am waiting on Alumen, supposed to be here any day.
Thanks again.
Lemifi last decade
Thanks for the update, Lemifi. I am happy for you.

nawazkhan last decade
'and Calendula same at 4/day '

nawazkhan last decade
4 pellets/day - 1 in AM
Lemifi last decade
Can you recommend a good homeopathic doctor in New York or New Jersey area?
Do you think your remedies will not work for me? Can I give them a try? I really need help!
saadbutt last decade
Hi Lemifi,

This is correct.

When would you be getting Alumen 30C?
