General & Family Physician 's  Response
Abnormal connection or passageway between two structures (organs or organ and surface of the skin) which we call fistula might have been formed post surgery.This is only one of the possibility however on examination this can be ruled our.Suggest to get a surgical opinion because its better to act before the local area get infected.Hope I have answered your question.
