What Can I Expect after Treatment for Bladder Fistula?

The success of the surgery depends on the surgeon being able to remove the main disease. There also must be healthy tissue to close the fistula with. If there is cancer that can't be removed or tissue that has poor blood flow due to radiation treatment, the results might not be as good. After surgery, you can expect to have a catheter in your bladder for a few weeks.
