    Saw my surgeon on Monday....he did an "exam" and said that he could not see any drainage from a fistula. My GYN said that he did see it. So, now I have to go next week and have a small bowel follow-through and a vaginogram done to see if I have a fistula forming from my small intestines to my vagina. Sounds like great fun, right there! I've never had either of these tests done before, so I am gonna have to do some reading up on them. I will let you all know what I find out once I get the results.

    Love to you all!

    I had a small bowel follow through just after I was diagnosed. Not that bad considering...You have to drink the think barium wait 30 minute then they take a series of pics of your abdomen. Never had the vaginogram done, but sounds rather interesting....
