Fistula in ano (Berb., Calc-P., Sil.)

An old rectal fistula becomes aggravated during the first days, with an increased painful soreness and itching in the anus and a more profuse suppuration, till after four weeks a violent catarrh breaks out, with very great febrile coldness, dry heat, and delirium, perspiration in the morning, and sour taste in the mouth. With this fever the trouble in the rectum disappears. The fever continues five days, obliging him to lie down, with a fatiguing drawing pain, extending from the forehead on the right side down over the cheeks into the cervical muscles and around the shoulder, with constipation, and at last ending with diarrhea for several days, followed by improved health, while the copious fluent catarrh frequently recurs, often for several hours, suddenly coming and going. In the tenth month there appears close to the anus a superficial white, suppurating spot, as large as a penny, together with a similar one on the inner surface of the lower lip, which slowly healed, after which the health was more and more established. (A fistula in the rectum gradually became smaller in the second week and healed, but in the third week it swelled about the fistula, became painful, and broke out again). (The fistula is swollen, painful, and inflamed, with burning and sticking in it), (fifty-second days). Frequent prolapses of the rectum, becoming larger or smaller and difficult to reduce. The rectum and urinary bladder seem paralyzed. During stool, violent pain in the rectum, so that she obliged to desist. Boring from within outward, as from a worm, in the rectum after an evacuation. Internal irritation in the rectum after ineffectual straining at stool, with evacuation of only some dark-red blood, with a distressing jerking sensation like an ineffectual straining at stool. A peculiar sensation in the anus as if the blood were moving back and forth in the vessels, with a sensation as of a cord extending from the anus through the lower extremity to the heel were made tense, associated with an asleep sensation, first in one foot, then in both.
Fistula in ano". Now the surgeons nearly all advocate that if there is a fistulous opening around the anus it must be operated upon. Homeopathy cures such cases. I have not operated on one for twenty years.

The remedy that is indicated for the patient will cure the patient and the fistula. Above all things they should not be operated on.

It is a dangerous thing to operate upon a fistula in ano. It is a very serious matter.
