Fistula Information For Fistula Diagnosis And Treatment

Can Fistula damage legs?

A fistula is any abnormal passageway that develops between two organs or parts of the body that are usually not connected. For example, one type of fistula is known as perilymph fistula, in which there is a cavity in the membrane that separates the middle ear from the inner ear. As a result, the two parts of the ear are connected, and the liquid from the inner ear seeps out into the middle ear, causing problems with the patient’s sense of balance. Another type of fistula (among the more common types in fact) is anal fistula, in which a passageway develops between an anal gland and the skin’s surface in the anal area. This condition is usually the result of an abscess, which is a pus filled cavity in the anal area. If the abscess is the result of an infected anal gland, it may eventually turn into a fistula. This whole process has a tendency to repeat itself – the fistula may close, causing accumulation of fluids and the development of an abscess once again, and eventually this will cause a fistula to develop once more.

What is Fistula And Fistula Complication?

You have not mentioned what kind of fistula you have, so it is difficult to say whether it would have any effect on your legs. In addition, it is not clear what exactly you mean when you ask whether the fistula could have damaged your legs. You have not specified what trouble you are experiencing with your legs. It seems extremely unlikely that any fistula would cause any damage to your limbs unless the fistula is on the affected limb itself. Fistulas of the joint can sometimes develop, and if one has developed anywhere on your leg, then you would certainly have a lot of trouble. However, this is rather obvious, and you would not need to be told this, especially as such a development would typically occur after some trauma to the leg, which itself would have caused some obvious damage.

Most likely, the fistula and the trouble you are having with your leg are unrelated and have developed independently. You should however visit a doctor and get treated both for your leg and the fistula, if you are not already doing so. After a physical examination, it will also be possible for your doctor to determine whether there is any connection between the two conditions. Treatment will of course vary, depending on whether the two are connected or not.
