I have Crohn's disease which ended up in a total proctocolectomy six years ago . I am currently in a flare again and I believe I might have a fistula connected to my bladder. Has anybody experienced this before? What are the symptoms, did you have frequent UTIs ? I have an MRI scheduled for tomorrow to see what's going on right now I'm just kind of curious . Thank You!

An MRI won't necessarily show the fistula. If it's negative, then see a urologist. They can actually fill your bladder with water while using a scope and see what's going on in there.
"For this thing I besought the Lord thrice that it depart from me. He said, My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness. Most gladly therefore will I rather glory in my infirmities; I take pleasure in infirmities, reproaches, necessities, persecutions, distresses, for when I am weak, then am I strong" 2 Cor
