Brief Answer:
It can not be Bladder fistula .

Detailed Answer:
Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have undergone surgery for Fistula in Anus which has recurred again .You have increased frequency of Urination.
The reason for recurrence of fistula could be due to fact that you might have high level anal fistula which is likely to have been not excised completely during first surgery.

Please get it confirmed by doing radiological test of Fistulogram before you go for redo surgery.

The increased frequency of urination that you have is likely to be due to referred pain
(Irritation ) of sphincter urethra.This is due to fact that anal sphincter and urethral sphincter have nerve innervation by two different branches of same nerve (Pudendal nerve).

However consult qualified Urologist for clinical assessment to rule out any other cause for your urinary symptoms.

Hope I have answered your query. If you have any more questions please feel free to ask me I shall be happy to help you .
Thanks and Regards.

Thank you Sir.

But I am facing this frequent urination from past 4 years, but this fistula occured only 6 months back. And I can see a think line like nerve from bottom of the testicles to the the rectum ring, but it has disappeared after coming close to rectum ring. I have to not only urinate but have to excrete fecus many times a day. I always feel like using a rest room
