The exciting conclusion:
Today I saw a general surgeon because he was the only surgeon who could see me away. He checked out my bum and saw imeadieatly that I have an anal fissure, and tiny fistula and an abscess. He pulled some strings and got me into the colorectal surgeon who I had wanted to see. She fit me in and under local anesthesia drained my abscess, placed a drain and addressed the fistula. I feel better already!
I am just amazed that last week I was subjected to 4 rectal exams and not one of the doctors had any idea what they were looking for. The general surgeon was not surprised. He said the ER is definitely not the place to go to get help with an abscess.
I hope that sharing my experience helps someone else avoid misdiagnosis in the future.
