Hey guys.. I'm a 19 year old male here. I have been on Remicade since July and have enjoyed a nice remission ever since. I feel like I have my life back!
Over the past week, however, my urine has started to smell really funky and there have been a 1 or 2 times where I am guessing a little air has come out. I wasn't sure about the air, however, because it happened so quickly. At any rate, maybe I'm jumping to conclusions, but what have been your personal experiences with bladder fistulas?
I am seeing my doctor Friday morning (my urologist).. until then, however, I will be a nervous wreck! I need to take it easy!
I have read that antibiotics can often time help fistulas. Then also surgery may have to occur aswell. Can anybody fill me in on the treatment for getting rid of this sucker?
