Signs And Symptoms Of Recurrent Fistula?
I want to ask what are the signs of a recurrence of the fistula and in how many months the fistula will recover after surgery, please answer anya😂😂tanks.
A fistula is a channel between two body parts/organs that should be separate. Fistula symptoms vary depending on the place where the fistula formed.
Fistulas that form between the vagina and rectum can cause painful symptoms in the vaginal area, fistulas that form in the stomach/between the intestines can cause prolonged diarrhea. Often fistulas on the inside of the body symptoms are not clear and can only be seen through investigations. Fistula that is easy to find is fistula ani (anal). Symptoms are pain in the anus, irritation around the skin of the anus, pain when defecating and feces can come out of the fistula.
Fistulas generally form as a result of a previous infection. The recommended treatment depends on the site and severity of the fistula but is generally a combination of surgical removal of the fistula and antibiotics. Not all fistulas will recur and for how long. If it relapses, it will cause symptoms as before.
