immature fistula vs mature fistula

Can someone explain the difference and how they know if the fistula has matured? When I had the cystoscopy, the dr could find only a small white line, not a hole like he was expecting. The CT scan showed the leak and I have the symptoms. Could it be the fistula hadn't matured, yet?

Re: immature fistula vs mature fistula

I'm sorry you have this condition. I have never heard of this difference and tried to look it up. I didn't come up with anything of any substance. Perhaps you just need to ask your doctor? Do you have a urologist (URO) or a urogynecologist (UroGYN)?

I hope you find all the information you need ASAP.

Re: immature fistula vs mature fistula

thank you! I had read something about fistulas maturing but I can't find the page I read it on and didn't find other info, either. I have a urogyn and my gyn, who's had little experience with this. I"ll have to remember to ask my urogyn. I've had more leakage this past week which makes me think that the fistula has matured to a hole. Evidently, they form over time, or something like that...I really need to find that page
