Faecal Incontinence

Faecal incontinence is the inability to adequately control bowel motions and wind. There are many causes for this disability with different treatments. A careful assessment from questions about symptoms and an examination supplemented by other tests will usually identify the cause. Treatment may involve surgery, physiotherapy, medication or a combination of these.
