The doc confirmed with me today that I do have a fistula....   He is going to send me for an MRI to get a better look.
 
Has anybody heard of getting an MRI for this?

Hi I had an MRI where they detected my fistula though now they are doing a colonoscopy for a better look I'd rather be having another MRI! all the best :-)

Yes. They stick a small, thin probe up your bottom so that they can better see the fistulas.

ps. They did for me, anyway. They might be able to see yours with a plain, uninvasive scan.

Yes. MRIs are the best for seeing fistulas.

for me, they were looking for a fistula up in my transverse colon --thank goodness it wasn't there! However, I had to drink a lighter barium drink which I wasn't planning on. My MRI turned out to me an MRI enterography. Good luck!!!
