I had an MRI 10 days after noticing leaking of urine and strange feelings in the rectum that showed a mild central disc extrusion at L5-S1 without spinal cord compression. I have incontinence and numbness in the groin/genital area. What is this?

Rectum not normal?: Hi i may need you to rephrase your question. But, the assumption i make is that your stool is frequent and/ or soft in the morning.
