Also, urine being such an irritatant to soft tissue, it is nearly impossible for the fistula to close back up itself, even if urine is diverted (such as with a temporary SP catheter).

    The SCI-Nurses are advanced practice nurses specializing in SCI/D care. They are available to answer questions, provide education, and make suggestions which you should always discuss with your physician/primary health care provider before implementing. Medical diagnosis is not provided, nor do the SCI-Nurses provide nursing or medical care through their responses on the CareCure forums.

    Looks like I'm in a hopeless situation. As this needs to be fixed..Does the surgery have many risks, can it mess up things .. and if u have to compare the fistula surgery with augmentation cystoplasty, as the latter itself is a big surgery. I might be asking too many queries ..Its getting me depressed.

    Get back with your surgeon. This is not something we can resolve through our forums.
