    Fecal Incontinence after Perianal Rectal Prolapse Surgery

    I had Altemeier Perianal rectal prolapse surgery 7 weeks ago. ~ 10 cm of my rectum was removed. I am 62 years old. Healing is fine. However, I am left with fecal incontinence. If I take lomotil, I don't have diarrhea but still have incontinence. My surgeon is MIA. I have collagenous colitis and had diarrhea, continence, etc problems before. However, the bowel control is much worse now. How long does it take for normal bowel function? I am very upset. It is almost impossible to leave my house. I have tried dietary, medication, exercise, etc. Nothing works. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    Hi. There is another thread going on on this site which I'm in about Laproscopic Ventral Rectopexy experiences. Some of the posts might be helpful to you. I have this surgery on the 14th Jan but I was already incontinent at the age of 47. I'll be 50 this year and hoping my life in going to be much improved but it is early days. Hope to chat again on the other thread. X
