i have had mine for 17 years, it’s been a nightmare for 17 years too ! fistula’s , blockages, bleeding, leaking. So much bile leaking that my butt hole is raw 24/7 . It’s horrible . I pray, give thanks cuz i know I would be dead without all these surgeries and I workout like a mad women lol its my anxiety relief method and has been my entire life . We are pretty amazing people! The battles we face daily are something to be proud of.
