Has anyone experienced grotesque swelling (3-5 times normal size) of some of their lady parts in direct relation to an RV fistula?
Here's a very brief summary of what has occurred. Multiple pelvic infections sprouted in a period of 7-10 days in mid October 2018. First, pouchitis. Then 2-3 days later, a vaginal discharge like a geyser & swelling of the left major labia (it swelled as large as a testicle - very odd and painful!). And 2-3 days later, 2 anal abscesses joined the party. The surgeon said the location of the RV fistula was very obvious during the pouchoscopy, so he placed a draining seton at that time. An MRI revealed no abscess network, but did identify the fistula & seton.
The inflammation of the left labia has waxed & waned twice since the seton was placed 4 weeks ago. I have been on max doses of cipro & flagyl since November. I wonder why my pouchitis has practically resolved, yet the inflamed lady parts continue to be problematic.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!
