Fistula patient could be a mom again can you believe this? Hey, guys, I wanna share my life story in this blog. In 2016 I faced severe disorders like fistula. After my daughter’s birth, I saw some blood clots in my uterine bag.
At day seven, I lost her. And I was so depressed. My period was not on time. After three months I felt very pain in my back and hip area. and I found blood in my urine. Oh, I shattered whats this? Ran to the Gynec with some of my urine showed her. At that time she thought it was a urine infection.
May her thoughts will be true. Meanwhile, she gave me a lot of antibiotics injections. Thoroughly that time I was in great trauma. After passing one month I discovered again blood in my urine. Somehow I felt that my period is in my urine.
Maybe or maybe not. My doc was not experienced that much so she was getting confused. Whereas my other journey begins. From this lab to that lab, tests, investigations randomly happened. Yet doc still has no clues.
At that point she decided to shift me to another most popular senior and experienced doc in Chittagong, Bangladesh named Dr. Rokeya Begum. Once I got a call from her. In addition, she made an appointment with Rokeya mam in a medical hospital. Rather being afraid I went there.
Meanwhile, they pinned some blue colored liquid in my vaginal canal. Almost there were so many interns also. Finally, they got a clue and I was diagnosed as a fistula patient. While Mam suggested that I have to do an MRI test. MRI test is the most horrible experience of my life.
Sounds are invulnerable. Along with peculiar sound inside roamed around me. Definitely that three hours equal to my effort got the result. Yes, they finally got a fistula or passage between my uterus and urinary bladder.
The doctor finally suggested for operation. Unwillingly fistula patient moved on to the next step. I want to recover me from this trauma. That medical time was not a comfortable time for me. But I hope for the best. Conversely, a group of the doctor made their mission. And successfully they sealed my bladder.
It was a major operation. Actually, there was no way to recovery for a fistula patient rather than surgery. Medication is not helpful in this sector. And with fistula pregnancy is not possible. That’s why they decided to correct my fistula then another suggestion may further come. So the operation was done by the medical board. Gynec and 17 other doctors were doing their job tremendously.
Postoperative care unit took care of me a lot for 24 hours of intensive care. And later two days I was ordered for a walk along with my drain bags and uterine bag. At first, I felt severe pain but after sometimes I felt relax ness in my sewing side. After seven days I back home with my uterine bag. Twenty-seven days that bag was attached by me. That time I was prescribed for estrogen and birth control pills for one month.
After one month I found my period is on the right track. That time my doc Rokeya mam suggested if you want to bring sunshine into your life. Forgot the dead chapter and try for a new one. That can remove your frustration. Yes, I know but I was afraid isn’t it too early? she said no dear you can.
From that time I tried for one and a half years. Again depression captured me. It should be noted that I couldn’t able to get pregnant. The doctor gave me hormone treatment like Duphaston and Clomid. But that was not for me.
We go for a cross-check to another doctor. She said no need for any medication. Wait some more months and mentally do relax. That’s another nightmare.
Rapidly I have gone through more investigations. Result in no complicacy shown.
Meanwhile just left the hope to conceive. The month of March I Just left my job and stay home. A full day I did rest. And did many research has found a healthy diet also important to get conceive. Though I followed so much of them. I did not pull any heavy lifting or tried to tension free.
After some days I did a lot of meditation that everything will be ok. I just heal my mind to say that word. And In 2018 May 3o I missed my period. After three days pass, I did a preg test at home. Finally, two lines made sunshine. Fistula patient mother feeling hopeful. Now I m in nine months prego journey.
Hopefully, all will be okay with me. Whatever went from me may return with double joy. So that was my VesicoUterinefistula recovery journey.
Lastly, I want to say fistula patient can be dreamed again.
