Hi. I have had my left hip replaced 2 years ago. All good. Now right one needs to be done.

However I have developed an anal fistula. It causes no issues but is there and I have stitch through it will this stop me from getting my second hip replaced?

Thank you

I'm sure one of the forum advisors will be along shortly. But what comes to my.mind is contacting your OS sooner, rather than later, to let him/her know about this. There are folks who were delayed at last minute because the surgeon didn't know about an issue. :what:

Ditto what @SarahBee said... Rather than worry give them a call to put your mind I rest...
I have psoriasis and was so worried about a flare up before my op... always something to worry about which doesn’t help when you are in pain... thinking of you xxx

So long as the fistula isn't actually draining, there shouldn't be a problem. But you are much better to discuss it with your surgeon to make sure he knows about it.

Thanks Sarah I will definitely mention it to him when I have my consultation

SarahBee, thank you if it’s not one thing it’s another

Thank you Josephine. No it’s quite dry and not draining. I don’t know it’s there but I will definitely let my surgeon know when I see him
