Hi, I am a 41 year old who lives in the Uk, This is something that I still suffer with today, Now through my life this has varied, sometimes I get a mild ache, another time infections, sometimes it can be quite painfull, and other times nothing for months. I have had numerous surgery, the only thing I can honestly recomend is massage. This was given to me by A surgeon quite a few years ago, Not many doctors understand or are knowledgable about this subject, I had one doctor convince me I was seriously ill, this was not the case, most of the info on the net about this condition is correct, as no one has studied these birth defects at length, there are quite a few opinions,
Ihave not let this hinder me in any way or hold me up and to be honest has made me a stronger person. ...... jom
