How to Stop Bowel Leakage?
For most people, being unable to trust and control their body is devastating.
Anyone who has had to deal with bowel leakage knows that physical and psychological consequences tend to limit people's lives and prevent them from doing what they want.
Fortunately, there is help available.
The first step includes lifestyle changes and medication, however, this may not be enough to help everyone with bowel leakage. If further treatments are needed, bowel irrigation, also called transanal irrigation (TAI) could help. It is a minimally invasive method to effectively empty the bowel by introducing lukewarm water into the rectum, through a rectal catheter or cone.
