Perianal disease: my experience

Hey guys,

I'll be writing about my experience with perianal disease and how my rectal surgery went (complete removal of my rectum and anus). I suffered many years with abscesses, fistulas, fissures and skin tags and this surgery helped me immensely.

I know there are many of you who are either considering having surgery or have it planned already. I hope that the info I've shared will help you. Part 4 (coming Thursday) will feature a photo timeline of my healing.

If you have any questions about the surgery or the experience, please let me know.
