Just Discovered a Fistula - Help

Seeking advice and learn from those with experience with a fistula.

A year ago I had surgery to remove a anal cyst. Surgery was successful and it took almost a year for the wound to completely heal. Now that the wound has successfully healed a fistula popped up and got infected. It drained on it's own but now my colorectal surgeon want's to do surgery on the fistula.

He said the fistula is superficial - meaning I guess it's not in deep. But of course anytime surgery is suggested, especially having just recovered from my surgery a year ago I am hesitant.

I read mainly nightmares about people having fistula surgeries and it not curing it and in some worst cases people have had over 7 surgeries. Is this just because people are more apt to post about a bad experience versus those with successful experience do not post, or should I be concerned about having surgery and seek an alternative fix - though it appears there are not much?

I'm 29yo male.
