Hi, just wondering if anyone has any personal experience in relation to rectovaginal fistulas. Do they ever heal on their own??

It started with a burst abscess and lots of pain. Pain is definitely settling. More discomfort now and this happens approx 3 weeks ago. I’ve been to dr and been referred to consultant next month. I can actually see the opening of this but wondered what tests I would need and if there was any chance of it healing on its own. Google seems to think the only option is surgery which freaks me out but if it’s needed then 🤷‍♀️. Has anyone had one heal on its own?? How are they diagnosed??
