Is surgery necessary for vesicovaginal fistula?
Q: My wife is suffering from vesicovaginal fistula. She does not have any problem, even if she does not pass urine. Her doctor suggests that she needs to undergo surgery for the same. Another doctor said that there are some new treatments, which can avoid surgery. Is there any treatment available to avoid surgery?
A:A vesicovaginal fistula is an abnormal communication between the bladder (vesico-) and the vagina. If she has a vesicovaginal fistula she is likely to leak a little urine all the time. She needs surgery. There is no non-surgical treatment that can control this condition.
