I'm an otherwise healthy 25/F.

I just posted an extremely long message and wrongdiagnosis logged me out for being on here too long-lol.

Have had so many abscess in the exact same spot for 2 years! Have had 3 fistulotomies, the first 2 done by general surgeons, the last by an anal/rectal surgeon. I have had so many abscesses that did not require fistulotomies I can't even count them. They are all in the exact same spot.

I have had CAT scans, MRI's and today a colonoscopy to try to find out what's going on. Nothing found.

I don't have any other medical problems. Lots of people have suggested Crohn's, but I only have "stomach problems" maybe a few days out of the month and it does not run in my family.

Please advise, anything!!!
