Incontinence board


I was wondering if anyone could give me feedback. I have leakage and nocturnal fecal incontinence due to an anal fistulatomy in '98 - approx. half of my internal and external sphincter has been damaged. I also have an ileo-anal anastomosis (for 15 years as I was on an HMO when I was diagnosed w/ulcerative colitis - surgery was the recommendation on a moderate case for one month which I now know should have never happened) which changes the consistency. This has placed a damper on my social life. I am currently on Asacol which has helped very much and right now I am ready to try biofeedback. Does anyone have any experience with this? Surgery is very complicated and not sure this will even work.
