How to Manage Life with Bowel Issues
Living with bowel problems is difficult – it affects your life and well-being - and it’s much more common than you would think. Many people with bowel issues struggle too long with different diets or stool-changing medication without effective results.
Bowel irrigation is often a successful therapy when you experience constipation and/or bowel leakage. It restores a healthy bowel routine and helps regain control of when and where to go to the toilet. As a result, the fear of having accidents eventually disappears, and you can start living your life without constantly thinking about your bowel and your toilet needs.
Bowel irrigation may feel strange or intimidating in the beginning, and your bowel may need time to adjust to new routines. But it will be worth it in the long run. We hope this guide will help you along the way.
