Hi everyone, on my last few visits to the hospital I was told I needed the back passage dilated as it had completely closed up, and after scans an mri and a ct I have been told I have 3 recto vaginal fistulas. The fistulas were causing me some trouble prior to the dilation, I had gas passing when I felt pressure in my tummy, but I didn’t pass any stool (maybe a small amount when I wiped like the colour would be the same).
Since the dialation I have no Symtoms from the fistula, (touchwood) I’m hoping by some miracle they will heal up, has this happend to anyone?
The other question I had is can you have sex with fistulas? Me and my husband haven’t got nearly a year, can they get bigger? Or make things worse?
My final question is about fistulas and getting pregnant, is it safe? If I did get pregnant I wouldnt have a natural birth because of my j pouch and I’ve had one c section already and been told it would be the same again, but can pregnancy make fistulas worse?
Thank you for taking the time to read all of this I appreciate it so very much, love to you all
