Fistula

Postby SteveUK » Thu Jul 29, 2004 7:08 pm

Hi there,

For the last two days, I have had a pain in my left arm, where my fistula is located. I don't use it now, as I am transplanted and it stopp working completely 2 weeks post-op.

Today I have experienced more pain, a little higher up my arm, as well as around the fistula site. I am wondering if this indicates something. It is a little tender to the touch, but what bothers me most is that it's supposed to be dead, and is only now starting to give me problems.

I would appreciate any advice.

Thanks
Steve
