From: From the chain of correspondence you have had with dr. Fowler, you may be suffering from fecal incontinence, which is the inability to control your bowel movements, causing stool (feces) to leak unexpectedly from your rectum, ranging from an occasional leakage of stool while passing gas to a complete loss of bowel control. Common causes of fecal incontinence include constipation, diarrhea, and muscle or nerve damage. Fecal incontinence may be due to a weakened anal sphincter associated with aging or to damage to the nerves and muscles of the rectum and anus from giving birth. Treatment will depend on the cause of fecal incontinence, but usually will start with dietary management and then medications, including laxatives and stool softeners. If the determination is made that the sphincter is lax or there is nerve damage, then sphincteroplasty may be beneficial. In some cases, sacral nerve stimulation may be considered. You may wish to see your gastroenterologist or a colorectal surgeon to assist in the management of your fecal incontinence. ...Read more
