Has Anyone Had A Rectal Abcess?
A myIBSteam Member asked a question 💭

I have IBS and diverticulitis. I also gave internal bleeding hemrroids for which I has sclerotherapy to shrink them. I had 2 successful procedures but my last one failed and caused a perforation with a septic abcess and fistula. I have been hospitalized 3 times now. Has anyone experienced anything similar. Apparently the failed procedure is considered rare.

Thank you

So I have decided I am sick of the stomach pain, nausea, throwing up, and the other end issues. With no help from the dr’s.
