Start the CONVERSATION….Lack of bowel control, fecal incontinence, FI, or any word associated is most commonly brought up when talking about the inability to hold your stool.
It is estimated that over 5.5 million Americans suffer from fecal incontinence.
Signs and symptoms:
- Chronic or recurring fecal leakage
- Inability to reach the toilet on time during daily activities
- Inability to hold gas
Living your life with the constant wonder of accidents isn’t a solution. New treatments like Sacral Nerve Stimulation can free you of the worry. If you’re having problems holding loose stool or gas its important to know there’s a solution out there. Bowel leakage isn’t normal.
