Re: New here. Biofeedback for constipation
Hi I'm copying and pasting my reply to the electrical stimulation post:
Hi, I had biofeedback for my pelvic floor. Electrical stimulation to strengthen my pelvic floor and in turn relax it better. I had a stroke 6 years ago and that affected my pelvic floor muscle..actually my brain needed to learn how to isolate that muscle. I was having bladder issues, where my bladder and urethra weren't working together so my bladder wouldn't empty correctly and I kept getting bladder infections. I was skeptical of the treatment: a probe inserted in my vagina that transmitted some electrical impulses to my muscles..I did it for 6 sessions, 15-20 minutes and honestly it was time/money well spent. My bladder went form having a post void residue of 30 cc, to 1cc in 3 sessions and about 0 to 1cc consistently after that...my urethra finally learned to relax!! YAY!!. I was peeing about 10 times a day, down to 4 now!!!.
the stimuli shouldn't hurt, it should be tailored to your specific feeling, so they should be able to tune it down if it's too painful for you..
Hope you see results soon!
