Hi Everyone,
 
I had a small bowel follow-thru yesterday. They thought they saw some "leaking" out of my intestine. They mentioned it may or may not be a fistua. They also asked me if I had any openings in my skin. Does anyone have any insight into this. I see my GI in a few weeks and I am just a little worried about this.
 
Thanks in advance.

The radiologist (spelling) said it may be a fistula. I am sure he is not allowed to say for sure. He said "he wonders where that is going to." And they asked questions about my skin. ---all which made me think it was a fistua. I never had a fistula before as far as I know.
