Numbness = hours: Marcaine lasts 6-8 hours. Some temporarily altered sensation + laxity of the tissues after this procedure would be expected. Often people are prescribed laxatives which will also increase the chance of some leaking/soiling. If it is happening more than you think it should then can decrease laxative dose +\- a physical examination/review is needed. However, it sounds like it may just settle down. ...Read more

Hard to say without physical exam, but this seems to be an individualized reaction to the injections. If this side effect is too undesirable, i would recommend forgoing any further injections. ...Read more
