← Return to Bowel incontinence
@lacy2 that sounds like an interesting book, and what you say about childbirth is interesting too. Did they find there is a connection between IBS and fecal incontinence? I doubt I have IBS but it's an interesting theory.

…basically this man's fecal incontinence was not the IBS he had been told he had for years – even now doctors, some, paint every bowel issue with the IBS paint brush. The very first time he had accident in clothing, went to Dr who didnt even examine him properly and promptly told him he had ibs !!! And it gets worse. I could loan you the book mail it to you and you could mail it back? Or maybe library has it: Faecal (Fecal) Incontinence is it really IBS? by T.R.Lewis It is mainly for those with predominantly fecal incontinence, which I didnt have until after c.diff. J.
Hello @jk Well its really about his fecal incontinence … he was put in the ibs bucket but had other reasons for his condition… he went through a lot and did not get a "cure" as much as control over the situation. I read it a couple of years ago and am going to read it again…. J. (yes women were cut when having a baby , stitches, and it was almost "normal" …not sure if they still do it as much. J.
