Hi Everyone,

I was trying to find people who have had (or know people who have had) a spit fistula? (esophagostomy)

Thank you in advance,

    Spit Fistula

    Hi Mistydy, wanted to reach out regarding you question about a spit fistula. I was 45 when I came out of surgery with one in my neck. A hole, so anything I ate or drank came out of the hole after it initially healed. feel free to contact me at [email protected]

    How to lived with spit fistula bag outside the comforts of home

    My husband is living with a spit fistula. He is on his forties. He doesn't like dining out anymore because he doesn't feel comfortable with people looking at him. We always have a disposable plastic drinking cup as his spitting cup. if He doesnt  spit it ou he feels like he is going to choke. He would wear shirts with a scarf to his drain. Any pointers ?
