This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Hello,

Nov 2008 I was rushed to the emergency room when an undiagnosed fistula in my rectum burst. Within hours it developed into a massive abscess the size of my hand and swelled to such an extreme that it shut down my urinary tract. During my three day stay in the hospital the surgeon confessed that it was the largest abscess he had ever seen and that I was very lucky it hadn't polluted my colon.

Flash forward to April 2009, the surgical wound had healed perfectly a couple months earlier, however it was around this time that I began to experience a great deal of pain in the general area. Not so much on the scar itself, but a deeper ache deep inside the tissue. The surgeon told me this could be due to the nerve endings reconnecting as it apparently is very common to experience this kind of pain. He advised I wait a few months and then consult my regular physician.

Jump ahead to June - August 2009, I'm still in pain so I consult my physician who sends me in for an ultrasound and a basic rectal exam. Everything comes back perfect though I'm still suffering. My physician has no immediate answers but advises that as a last resort I may want to have a colonoscopy. Though this would be a last resort if I was still suffering..

Mind you the pain fluxuates all this time. I always grade it on a scale of 1-10 (1 being some subliminal discomfort, and 10 being unable to function). I'd spent many weeks where I'd be between 1-3 and could ignore it, only to get blindsided by a 8-10 day or week. Then it would subside and I could function, though I've rarely if ever had a '0' day.

January 2010 I had my colonoscopy and everything was perfect. Again I'm told it could all be due to the nerve endings healing and that I may just have to be patient for my body. My physician told me that this may be something that medicine just can't help me with and that not all pain is fixable.

Now nearly a year and a half of dealing with this I've given up on a Western approach and want to think outside of the box. I was excited to find your forum and am hoping to get some sort of guidance on what to do now.

Thanks

Joe my situation is absolutely enlightening.I cannot believe how fast I responded to the therapy. In about one months time, I went from chronic pain, bleeding, fevers and pus, to practically no instance of a fistula.The fistula and the canal under the skin has shrunk/recessed considerably. The whitehead that was on the surface of the skin has disappeared. Even people at work say I look rested and have color in my face. I am still taking the last prescribed doses I listed above.

To everyone reading this. You MUST follow the steps and prescribed doses, including taking them early and at the end of day. I cannot tell you how surprised I was when each morning I would awake and see there was improvement.
------------------------------

8/10/10:

Hi Joe. How is everything? Well it's been a month and a half or more since starting therapy and I feel great! The canal under the skin is almost totally gone, I only can feel a few millimeters of raised tissue and it's retracted to blend with the normal tissue. The Fistula head is not even existent. Every once in a while I get small twinges of pain in the area, but that is common when swelled tissue heals.It is definitely almost gone.

Still taking:
sitz baths
Arnica 2x a day
AB ointment
Nat Phos after meals

I guess you can say I'm in the successful rate of healing for this therapy.

You've been a God send Joe.
Thank you. Do I need to keep you updated still? I know I will be taking wet dose of Arnica forever, anything else I should be taking for prevention or strengthening of the tissue?

I was the one who posted about the tennis ball/raquetball technique on page 50.

The fistula had multiple tracks and would drain when I applied pressure in a certain direction. For ONLY THAT REASON I discovered if I sat Indian style on the floor, and placed a racquetball ( small blue, hollow, rubber ball used to play the game racquetball) in the fleshy part of the buttocks ( the actual empty socket of the buttock)or positioned between my cheek and taint and relaxed my sphincter as if I was preparing for a BM), I could get it to drain. I would have to sit sometimes for a while while watching tv before it would drain, sometimes it was instantaneous. I placed rags, paper towels underneath to catch it. I also used a tennis ball as it was harder and would also work.

I can't say this will work for everyone, as I knew the direction the pus was coming out from and how to position myself to allow it to drain. You can force the pus further or even create more canals under the skin if you are not careful.

Hi Joe,

I had a vaginal tear 3 weeks back and you had prescribed Arinca and Ferr phos. The tear has healed now. Thats what the gynec said. I had all blood tests done right from hormone levels [thyroid, progestrone, estrogen, testosterone] to blood sugar levels and all are normal. The pap smear results are normal too.

The only problem is that I still have burning from the top in the outer lips in the vaginal area to the start of the anal area. The anal area feels as if it is dry but it is actually not.

The whole area still feels irritated and burns. Sometimes itches too.

Do you think there might be something else I am facing here? The gynec checked my uterus and says everything seems normal.

I have been applying FRANCH OIL 3 times a day which is a herbal oil available in India.

Help is appreciated.

Thanks.

Your case is unique at least for me and I really do not know how to treat your immediate problem is the pain that you suffer from every so often.

I can think of Arnica 30 in the Wet dose taken twice daily + Ferr Phos 6x tablets dose 3 tablets taken twice daily.

Do you suffer from hard stools at all ? A hard stool can exacerbate the delicate tissues in your anal region which can then lead to the pain that you describe.

I failed to give you the protocol to make the Wet dose in my last post

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before sipping a capful of the bottle which can be used as a dose.
 
Joe De Livera last decade
To Rohitgangadeb

You have already had 2 surgeries and a third is in the offing. I hope that the protocol that I have prescribed to many which I shall copy below will help you:

Joepathy therapy for treatment of Anal Problems:

Silicea 6x Dose 2 tablets taken twice daily to expel the pus from the lesion.
Arnica 30c in the Wet dose a capful of the bottle taken thrice daily to increase the flow of blood which in turn will help to rebuild the tissue.
Nat Phos 6x Dose 2 tablets taken twice daily after meals to soften the stools.
Ferr Phos 6x Dose 3 tablets taken thrice daily to improve the quality of the blood to help heal the lesion.
Antibiotic Ointment like Polyfax or equivalent which is used internally on the tip of a gloved finger inserted into the anus after every bowel movement to keep the bacterial count as low as possible in the lesion.

The Wet dose of any Homeopathic remedy is made as follows:

Order the remedy in a 5ml Ethanol pack also referred to as Liquid Dilution in a bottle preferably with a dropper arrangement.
Get a 500ml bottle of Spring Water from the nearest supermarket.
Pour out about 3cm of water from the bottle to leave some airspace.
Insert 3 drops of the remedy into the bottle and shake the bottle hard before you sip a capfull which is the dose.
Shaking the bottle hard is homeopathic succussion and this shaking must be done every time before a capful of the bottle is sipped as directed.

Get a rubber cushion or even a Bajaj tube on which you can sit to relieve the pressure on your anal region.

Drink plenty of water up to 3 ltrs daily.

Exercise to sweat on a daily basis.

No alcohol, chillie hot food, preserved meats like sausages, ham, bacon.

I presume that you are continuing with the Arnica and the Ferr phos as this will help the tissue to heal.

You state:
'The only problem is that I still have burning from the top in the outer lips in the vaginal area to the start of the anal area. The anal area feels as if it is dry but it is actually not.

The whole area still feels irritated and burns. Sometimes itches too. '

If your gynecologist has reassured you that everything is normal, there is little that I can do to help you. It is possible that the itching may be due to some bacterial infection and if so an anti bacterial ointment can help.

You can use Arnica 6c in the Wet dose instead of the 30c and also apply the remedy directly on your vaginal area wherever you experience some discomfort. I have used this protocol in the case of Acne and it is just possible that this same technique may help you.
 
Joe De Livera last decade
Thanks for the response Joe.

I had stopped Arnica and Ferr phos 2 weeks back when they said thae tissue had healed. I will continue it again if you say so.

I am applying Monistat cream since last night on the area and will update on the itching and burning.

Do you want me to apply arnica ointment on the area?


The episiotomy cut which was a mediolateral cut has a bulge at the area where it has healed and bothers me . The gynec says thats how it will be due to the type of cut. Will continuing Arnica and Ferr phos help heal the area some more so that I am able to sit without having to cringe myself everytime I hit the area?
 
sandyriver last decade
To Sandy

You will have to continue with the Arnica 6c + Ferr Phos 6x for the next month at least. If all goes well you can stop the Ferr Phos but you must continue the Arnica 6c at least once daily preferably at night for life.

I believe that your present problem is due to your stopping both remedies prematurely.

I am not aware what Monistat cream is but I would advise you to use only Homeopathic remedies which helped you in the past.

Please note that I advised you to only apply the Arnica 6c remedy water on your sensitive areas. Here is what I stated:

'You can use Arnica 6c in the Wet dose instead of the 30c and also apply the remedy directly on your vaginal area wherever you experience some discomfort. I have used this protocol in the case of Acne and it is just possible that this same technique may help you.'

You seem to have misinterpreted my statement as you state:

'Do you want me to apply arnica ointment on the area? '

Please note that Arnica Ointment should NOT be used as indicated by you. You may only use the Arnica remedy water from the bottle which you sip as a dose. You can use a wad of cotton wool which you will dampen and dab the remedy on the lesion as this can help in the curative process.

Hi Joe,
So, I have been taking medicine as prescribed by yourself for about 2 weeks now. I have a lot of pain relief which is very good. However, the sinus is still there but size is swelling is smaller in size. Also, the oozing has improved.

I Will repot back after two weeks again.

Thanks Joe

thanks for the response joe. I will continue the Arnica.
Yes, i was confused if it was arnica ointment. Thanks for clarify. I will try it out and let you know the improvements.

Thanks

As long as you continue to use the therapy I have formulated and prescribed to you, there is very little that I can add further to help you to treat your Fistula. It is only a matter of time before your body reserves or Vital Force takes over and you are cured.

After you reach this happy state you will still have to take Arnica on a daily basis and also keep the Nat Phos in reserve to be used if you discover that you get constipated as this is a sure way to get back to square one with another Fistula again.

Hi Joe,
I am a male of 39 year and
suffering from anal fissure & sentinel pilesfrom last 20 years and got it operated on 5/4/2010.
Within one month of the opertion perenial abscess developed on the left side of anus and got it Operated (drained) on 12/7/2010.
Culture of the abscess pus show Klebsiella pneumonie so have to take Meronem IV for 5 days from 26/7/2010 to 31/7/2010.
Now doctor is saying that abscess have develop into fistula and need to be operated again.
I had therefore started taking your Joepathy from 6/8/2010.

Arnica 30C - 1 tsp 3 times a day (after shaking 5 times)
Nat Phos 6x - 2 tab 3 times a day (after food)
Ferrum Phox 6x - 2 tab 2 times
Applying antiseptic ointment (povidine iodine 5%) after returning from toilet
Eltroxin 25mcg (for hypothyroid).
Pus is still coming out of the operated area and it seem that another abscess has started developing at 5 o'clock.
Please advice whether I shall continue with the above treatment or shall change the medicine.

Re: Abscess /Fistula Treatment From Joe De Livera on 2010-08-12
I note that you have already suffered from two surgeries this year and that your surgeon has advised you to come in for the third. As you have already discovered surgery for Ano-rectal ailments is not the answer as many patients have been condemned to repeated surgical experiments which have compelled them to alter their lives and depend on their surgeon for further experimentation which seems never ending.

You are fortunate that you discovered the ABC Forum and that you visited the Fistula thread on:

http://www.abchomeopathy.com/forum2.php/1127/54

I prefer to treat patients on this thread and would request you to copy and paste your post there and I shall respond as soon as I get the email alert.

Please note that I am not a qualified Homeopath but I do have some experience in using Homeopathic Remedies to help all those who seek my assistance.

Thank you for posting on this Thread which specialized on the treatment of Anal problems.

I would recommend that you do not deviate from the therapy that I have prescribed in my posts to other patients as this protocol has been refined to what it is today and as you can read from the responses of patient on this Thread, many with reports of cures, this therapy is very effective.

I note that you are using an anti-SEPTIC ointment:
'Applying antiseptic ointment (povidine iodine 5%) after returning from toilet'

Replace with an anti-BIOTIC ointment like Polyfax or equivalent which you may have to get with a prescription from a doctor.

It will not do to APPLY this AB ointment which I presume you do externally on the anus. It must be inserted inserted deep inside the anus, preferably on the tip of a gloved finger, and should be massaged downwards to promote the expulsion of pus. The AB is required to keep the bacterial count as low as is possible inside to promote the curative process.

You are taking
'Ferrum Phox 6x - 2 tab 2 times'
Increase the dosage to 3 tablets taken 3 times daily

Please note that Nat Phos and Ferr phos both at 6x potency are known as Biochemic Cell Salts which have a beneficial effect on the body.

The Silicea 6x may be used for a week at 3 dose per day and later reduced to twice daily. It is primararily designed to promote the expulsion of pus and is a deep acting remedy not recommended for long term use for fear of other side effects.
 
Joe De Livera last decade
Hi Joe,
I am using antiseptic ointment internally by an applicator and it give great relief from pain. But as you suggested I had checked that Polyfax is not available in Kolkata, India and the one that have same compostion have also steriod added to it which I do not want to use. Can I use AB ointment based on framycetin sulphate.
I have noted that I should use FP6x 3 tab/3 times. You have recommended Silicea 6x 2 tab every day for 3 week in the thread and thereafter two dose per day. I have completed one week shall I reduce the dose now and after two week. Please confirm.
 
hectech last decade
To Hectech

You stated:
'I am using antiseptic ointment internally by an applicator and it give great relief from pain.'

I do not understand how an antiseptic ointment can relieve pain. It can perhaps kill the bacteria to some extent which may have been the cause of some burning after a BM but not as effectively as the antiboitic
ointment.

'Can I use AB ointment based on framycetin sulphate.'
Yes you can as it is a broad spectrum AB ointment but it must be applied inside the anus as prescribed not by an 'applicator' but with your gloved finger which is used to massage the lesion downwards to expel the pus.

'You have recommended Silicea 6x 2 tab every day for 3 week in the thread and thereafter two dose per day.'
I believe that you have misunderstood the dosage prescribed for Silicea 6x which should be 2 tablets taken twice daily till the pus stops when it can be reduced to just once daily. I used to prescribe taking it thrice daily but have since amended my therapy to just twice daily as Silicea is a deep acting remedy which need not be used too often unless to help cases like yours where the pus must be expelled to help the lesion to heal while Arnica and Ferr phos will rebuild the tissue thereby closing up the Fistula internally.

You may realize that an equivalent cure of a Fistula through surgery or drugs just does not exist.

I hope that you have read at least the last 5 pages of this thread to give you an idea of how my Joepathy has helped many patients, many of whom have confirmed that they were cured.
