Could I get a doctor's opinion on this? I would like to get this issue resolved as soon as possible.
It is most embarrising to pass gas through the penis without having control over it.
Dear Dr J Singh,
Could you please commend on this? I have had this problem since March of 2008 and wonder if I have have been waiting too long before something is done about this.
As of yet I have no answers.
On February 9, I will have another cystoscopy to determine if correction is needed. I'm hoping that something can be done since I now will have had this problem for 3 years.
You don't indicate if you sought medical help yet. If not I suggest that you do so as soon as possible. An abnormal communication between the bowels and urinary tract can and most likely will cause infections. You also don't want to end up with an infection at the location of the fistula.
For me, I have had very little problems with passing gas through the penis lately, however I do think that gas at times ends up in the drainage bag. I find it a little strange since the fistula is in the prostatic urethra. I would assume that gas would take the route of least resistance and therefore should come out of the penis.
I hope that I will have some answers on the 9th.
