I have got a 4-5mm intersphincteric abscess which clearly shows up on an MRI scan. When i went in for surgery
to cut it out, my surgeon said he couldn't find the abscess
and that there isn't anything he can do to help me as he cannot feel it or find an internal opening from where the abscess is draining inside the anal canal, despite the fact he knows its exact location on the MRI scan! I was devastated when he told me this as this abscess is ruining my life.
