| | External Anal Sphincterplasty and Peritenal Reconstruction
I will be having this surgery in late April, has anyone out there experienced this? On other threads its seems to be internal/external sphincterplasty discussions. I have no information about recovery, length of time, when life is normal again, etc. From what i read on the internet, just external has a good success rate...but i can't get much out of my doctor yet.
If anyone has experienced this, please tell me your story. Mine is from a botched delivery 14 years ago, the doctor forgot to turn off my epidural. Finally my son was stuck and they had to cut and pull out with forceps, which is when this damage occurred. I had no symptoms until last year when incontinence started, and originally we thought it was IBS or Colitis or something.... but during an colonoscopy the doctor identified the lack of a sphincter. My is separated at 10 & 2 oclock, and they will be rejoining/overlapping it. At same time fixing the rest of the pelvic floor area damaged back then. Having a 2nd delivery probably made the original damage worse, but here I am now.
