A fistula can develop after abdominal surgery, with inflammatory bowel disease, cancer, anorectal abscess, and ...Read more
Fistula: Tracheoesophageal fistulas are rare. They are usually diagnosed in newborns who have frequent aspiration pneumonias. In adults the can be the result of trauma, tumor or from complications of treatments. They usually present as frequent aspiration pneumonias and usually require surgery to correct.
Discharge, irritation: A rectovaginal fistula is an abnormal connection between the rectum and the vagina. This could cause discharge of stool from the vagina, as well as irritation and pain around the area. If you have a rectovaginal fistula, you should be evaluated by a physician who can help you.
If I had an anal fistula what would be the exact symptoms and would they become more obvious after I had just been to the toilet?
Before treatment...: Could you be referring to fissures, fistula, abscess? Sexually transmitted disease (syphilis, gc, hiv, etc.) should be considered. Hemorrhoids & rectal prolapse can appear as an outward bulging. Anal trauma of any kind may cause mechanical injury. Skin eruptions need to be considered. Evaluation is recommended to distinguish serious versus less concerning reasons for your problem before treatment.
Signs of aortoesophageal/aortoenteric fistulas? Would these symptoms last a while? Or does it turn asymptomatic fast? Multiple symptoms at same time?
Completely different: A fissure is a tear. They bleed, and can be very painful. A fistula is an abnormal connection from the bowel to another organ, viscus, or the skin. The common types are between the trachea and esophagus, the rectum and the vagina or bladder, or the colon and the skin. They are generally in the setting of either surgery and post operative care or infection, like diverticulitis.
Fissures and: Fistula are 12 different things. Fissures usually cause a severe tearing like pain with bm and severe spasm in the sphincter after a bm and may have significant bleeding, fistula is usually a pressure type pain and may drain a mixture of blood and infected fluid or purulence. They are treated differently so a correct diagnosis requires an exam. Both may require surgery but not the first choice.
The two: Are different issues and treated differently. See a colon and rectal surgeon to make the diagnosis and offer treatment options.
Different: Fissures and fistulas are different things. A fissure is a tear in the skin of your anus while an anal fistula is a "tunnel" that communicates the inside of the anus with the "outside" anal skin. They both can produce anal pain, but pain is more typical of an anal fissure. Anal fistulas can give you recurrent anal abscesses, chronic anal discharge, etc. .. I hope this helps.
What r the symptoms of aortoesophageal & aortoenteric fistulas? Could I have either and not know? Especially if it's small? How long until death? Years?
Fistula: Fistula is connection between two cavities. Unless you're born with this issue it is less likely fistula. Or unless you had some kind of surgery recently. My guess is simple infection in the umbilical area. You need to be seen by dr.
What are symptoms of an anal fistula? I'm having some itching and it seems like I can never wipe good. Had Normal colonoscopy and endoscope recently.
A number of symptoms: Symptoms of an anal fistula include skin irritation around the anus, a throbbing pain, and a discharge of pus or blood when you have a bowel movement. In addition you may have odor, fever, or swelling in the area. An anal fistula may be due to an abscess or an underlying inflammatory bowel disease like Crohn's disease. A normal colonoscopy and endoscopy are reassuring.
Anal fistuka: Your symptoms are certainly worrisome for an anal fistula. A fissure presents as painful bleeding. A fistula presents with external pain, drainage with a foul odor, and generally involves a previous anal procedure, but not always. Consult a surgeon, as surgery is effective treatment for both.See 1 more doctor answer
Can perforations or fistulas occur in the upper/lower GI without any symptoms or signs, after swallowing fish bone? Worried I'll drop dead w/o warning
No: Dropping dead without warning is quite rare in modern life, with or without a fishbone. Our gut has a remarkable ability to handle small sharp objects, coating them and pooping them out. The things that cause perforations are objects like button batteries (electrochemical damage to our gut) and magnets (sticking together to cause pressure damage). The damage leads to pain and other symptoms.
