Help With Your Diagnosed Condition
It may be useful to discuss medication with your GP or Pharmacist. There are several types of medications which act in different ways to help relieve bowel symptoms.
Ano-rectal Irrigation involves using warm water to stimulate more complete and effective evacuation by flushing out the lower bowel. This is something available on prescription and your physiotherapist will discuss this with you further if needed.
Specific devices are available which are designed to help you feel more confident with your bowel management. Containment products such as anal plugs/inserts can reduce the risk of faecal leakage and are sometimes the best option with severe ongoing leakage problems. Your physiotherapist will discuss this with you further if needed.
