I would really appreciate any support you can give me, yesterday the penny dropped and I self diagnosed myself with a rectovaginal fistula. I had been feeling strange wind for a while and achey but that’s normal with UC right? Also the very small amounts of brown/orange discharge - sorry to gross you out.
It makes me feel so shocked and sad that this has happened to me, I can’t sleep but know that is exactly what I need 😱
The clincher was last night when I thought I had better use an enema and I had to go straight to the loo for it all to come out 😭
I am so gutted, I heard about someone going to India for an Ayurvedic treatment which was successful but I am not up for that I am a full time mum with very little support, and I really don’t want to go under the knife 😱
What I want to know is will it get better on its own?
I guess it will as it has already as the discharge has recently stopped.
Sorry to rant but I am in the thick of it right now and don’t feel I can discuss it with my other half as that is a sacred area that I don’t want him to be put off - can anyone tell me if a normal sex life is possible with this condition?
I really appreciate any advice or experiences you can share with me
