Leaky Gas/Fecal Body Odor Cured

I used to have the same symptoms many people have related in this forum: inexplicable intestinal gas releases without my knowledge. Sometimes, I felt a burning sensation around my anus when the bad smell was arousing, but I was not always aware of this sensation. There were no spots in my innerwear.The procedure is an ambulatory surgery. Just the same procedure used in cosmetics implants. One anoscopy was the single different tool they used. Even the needle they used was coming with the Restylane Perlane kit. The base of this procedure is the technique and, for obvious reasons, I don’t know it in deeply details. I inserted the video because I wanted everyone knows this is a very skilled and prepared professional team who trusted me when I said I was facing a real problem. In the first hours when I was heading to my house after the procedure I even could smell the Betadine they use to sterilize that area. I think they used a clamp to insert large Betadine embedded strands of gauze sponges inside my rectum and then retired them, but I am not sure. You’ll see, now I realized the leaky gas problem it is not a problem with the gas itself, but a problem with the sealing of our anus in relaxed state. The reason we do not escape solid or liquid material it is because our muscles are essentially in good shape. When the muscles act, the seal is complete, but we cannot go around tightening our anus continuously and we don’t feel the sensation of gases coming from that area just because the usual sensation we feel is generated by compressed air. No sealing, no compression. This is just a theory, the fact is, the hyaluronic acid seal start to work two or three days after the procedure and it is still improving the following two weeks.I didn’t feel any complications with this procedure. I was just afraid for the three days of treatment with antibiotics because I was a former adherent of the candida myth.I used to read all these stories many people has related in this site with the hope that someday someone gave us the good news I’m pleased to share today with you. Thanks for your interest and I hope everyone suffering from this problem have the kindness of keeping this post up there in order to share this experience with more people. I also hope this could be a humble expression of gratitude with my doctor.
Hiplease could you detail your symptoms before this surgery?Could you explain more about the surgery (I take it the video is not the surgery you had)...what is the intention? exactly what change in symptoms did you experience? any complications? healing time etcThanksI'm really happy for you if you have found help through this method, and it is admirable that you share this info with others to try and help them.

No pain at all, just small uncomfortable bowel movements (sometimes constipation, sometimes diarrhea I think now were more related with diet changes) and normal bowel noises in the past. In fact, one gastroenterologist suggested a year and half ago the noises were a good signal of healthy bowels. I’m not suggesting all the “IBS cases” are equal to mine, but I’m almost sure every symptom involving LG/FBO is related with anal sealing problems. Off course, I’m just a patient and for me was very difficult to convince any doctor about my symptoms like everyone else. Now I’m here trying to bring good news to everyone but I’m not very willing to pass through the same experience trying to convince other sufferers that I was in fact ill or I am cured yet.I got my surgery maybe because I happened to visit a colleague and friend of the current surgeon after not finding any help from this one (nor from three other gastroenterologists, nor from one allergologist, nor from one infectious disease specialist, nor from one bacteriologist, nor from one internist). I sent a desperate e-mail to the second coloproctologist complaining about the distrust in my history by any physician, including his colleague/friend and himself and demanding a surgery for one of my two diverticulous found by the first gastroenterologist who assisted me. I think this two people chat between them and then came out with this solution which is the standard solution for wind incontinence.I am not pretending anyone suffering from LG/FBO came to my country (Venezuela) to undergo surgery with my doctor, but I think it will be easier for anyone to make a better choice knowing this precedence exist and it is real.
Thanks for the post and I'm glad you're better. :DBut, I'm curious. Do you have symptoms other than the leaky gas? Typically, many seem to suffer from constipation or diarrhea coupled with abdominal pain and have noise emananting from their bowels. Have you had any trouble with the aforementioned symptoms or was it solely leaky gas?Also, if it's not too much trouble could you describe the path taken to get to surgery?

Are you 100% cured, or are has your leaky gas improved significantly and it is continuing to do so? Personally, I've had great improvement with a strict FODMAP diet, meditation and exercise. Although even having 5% of my previous symptoms on some days is still cause for concern. And so I'm looking for something that will give me that 100%. I've had zero smell on some days and it I want that feeling everyday. Furthermore, shouldn't a pump work immediately after and not need the following weeks for recovery?Lastly, what do you mean by " two diverticulous "? A Google search draws a blank...Your post is greatly appreciated and it's driven me to seek out more doctors who can help. I gave up after the first two gave me nothing more than a fibre supplement and some advice on peppermint tea... I'm going to demand as much medical attention as I can get. But in the end, a couple more months on this diet might rid me of that last 5%.
the hyaluronic acid seal start to work two or three days after the procedure and it is still improving the following two weeks.

Yes, I think so.
Are you 100% cured
Yes, from a worst condition inmediatly after the procedure up to a 100% healthy condition.
has your leaky gas improved significantly
I know what your talking about, I'm still very disturbed anytime I smell a bad odor. Fortunately, I can quickly relate any extrange source this time. That was not the case in the past.
Although even having 5% of my previous symptoms on some days is still cause for concern.
My Dr. ordered four 1cc Perlane kits. The plan was to apply one unit in each quadrant. Unfortunatly, the first unit filled in the whole space. So after the second application, he decided to keep the other two units for a reinforcement within 6 month. I think the problem worsen, but then an internal rearrangement should have occured.
Furthermore, shouldn't a pump work immediately after and not need the following weeks for recovery?
I'm sorry for the mispelling. I meant "diverticulum"http://digestive.nid...diverticulosis/
Lastly, what do you mean by " two diverticulous "? A Google search draws a blank...
Good luck for you! I already walk down that path 6 continuos months, and I wish to you best results. An additional problem with this condition is that many people try to take advantage selling a myriad of extrange herbs and food complements. They already have a lot of money from me too.
But in the end, a couple more months on this diet might rid me of that last 5%.

Yes, typically at work. And being at work, frequently at meetings. I used to work in office and then decided to move to field. I'm an electrical engineer, but problems were always presents. Even working in field, sometimes you need to seat down to write a brief or to meet with some people at office.
Did your leaky gas get worse when you were anxious or in public?
Yes, worst of all being dairy products and fatty food. I could notice a continuous bad odour in the last two cases. My explanation now is the following: I was not expelling flatus all the time, but my bowels were open to the atmosphere, just like a siphon of a kitchen sink when got dry and let the vapours escape from the sewer. Sadly, being some food more benign than other, the problem always persisted and was embarrasing for me and for every one around me in any scale.
Did your leaky gas get worse depending on what you ate or drank?
Candida diet for 6 months and a dramatic loss of weight from 180 to 150 pounds. The general perception I think I gave was being suffering from AIDS. Also some products and food complements, for example: huge quantities of Glutapak R, a combination of Lactobacillus Reuteri and glutamine. Also vitamins (Berocca) and oreganol. Lot of money. I also bought and listened for three month "The IBS Audio Program 100"... and the shreddies underwear. I'm sure I'm forgetting some things.
Had you tried any other cures before hand?
I don't know how to explain why in this condition for me and for everyone suffering from this ilness it is easier to think there is a gas thin enough to scape through our skin: A "leaky gas". I consider myself a science man and I compared the concept of "leaky gas" with some obsolete theories like the "Phlogiston theory" or the existance of the "luminiferous aether or ether".
It's very hard to think that this might be the reason because other people have been cured by other means.
I think they are very lucky, because it is a very unpleasant sensation to have an anoscope inserted in your anus. I almost forgot, I also took grapefruit seed extract. I can put an image of all these things.Uploaded with ImageShack.usAlso Kegel exercises. A colonoscopy. A Computed Tomography... Hey, you can see part of my bowels (sigmoid colon and rectum) here like they appear when I'm laying down:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=weH4TBI72bgJust remembering, I also paid 20 british pounds for one paper described here: http://mensnewsdaily...l-syndrome-ibs/
What do you think of all the other people that have the same symptoms but have been cured by probiotics or GSE?

Hey friend, thank you for the interesting feedback. Maybe this could help you:http://www.solestainfo.com/patients/finddoctor.aspx?zipcode=IL&page=1
In any case, the procedure you presented was approved, just this year, by FDA in the US. If you search for Solesta gel injections, there are some articles online already. This sounds very promising, non-invasive, and safe. If anyone knows about doctors in Chicago area performing those injections, please share. Thanks.http://www.fda.gov/NewsEvents/Newsroom/PressAnnouncements/2011/ucm257112.htm

Simon, I know what your talking about. Yours were my own thoughts too before getting some positive results. Take into account you're talking about hypothesis, I'm talking about a fact. The fact is I feel so great. If you like to talk about theories, think about this: a bowel open to the atmosphere maybe, just maybe, could lead to intestinal flora alteration because they are not suppose to live in the present of hugh oxigen quantities.Remember, I got two diverticula. I used to comfort myself thinking "leaky gas" was the price I have to pay for not leading to a rupture of one of them. But it is very hard to convince anyone around you that you have a sort of release valve system which puts you on a superior stage of evolution. I can't warrant everybody is going to be happy with the application of this procedure. Even I don't recommend it to anybody. I just think we only could feel better thinking we have the possibility of contributing to the expansion of the current understanding level of this illness relating our own experiencies.By the way, I think my doctor thought the same way too, because he prescribed Omeprazole for 14 days after the procedure.
I understaned this to mean incontinence of solid or liquid fecal matter. "Leaky gas" I understand to mean incontinence of gas (flatus)...often in small amounts virtually constantly, and excapes without the patient being aware. Doctors would say that there is no such condition as leaky gas, because flatulence is normal, and it is also normal to pass flatus without being aware of it....So, if nothing else is changed apart from this treatment, then the ammount of gas will remain unchanged...the patient will just be able to control it better, perhaps leading to a cessation in flatus escaping without the person being aware. A result of this would be bloating rather than leaky gas.

Wow, in your case, I would try to increase fiber intake and drink lot of water.
-I have to strain HARD every time I need to have a bowel movement. This is because, most of the times, my stools are like small pellets
This was my case too. Obviously, there are more than one cause for this then. I feel a little sad as I'm writing now.
This is when my most distressing symptom manifests: the odor of my stool leaks out. This doesn't happen through flatulence but rather, it works like those car air fresheners- the odor just wafts out of me.
My doctor recommended one Anorectal Manometry test as a condition for the hyaluronic implant, but I was desperate and he was very kind letting me to skip this step. However, in my next visit, I will remind him to let me have one order for this. The first coloproctologist also was thinking about one anorrectal biofeedback therapy. In your case, I gave the last one a try. I almost forgot: before I practiced Kegel excercises sometimes I experienced some burning sensation after emptying my bladder, a very common symptom of the "candida infection" myth, but I think a pelvic floor weakness is a better explanation for that.
-Urinal dripping. This one started a few months ago. Every time I'm done peeing and put on my boxers, a drop or two leaks out. This is annoying....sometimes when I hold back the stools, I get this shooting/stabbing pain in my anus. It last anywhere from 3-8 seconds...After passing particularly bulky stools, while wiping, I notice that my anus gapes open and doesn't close up.
I think none of us neither knows it exactly. But surely we all agree fiber intake along with drinking a lot of water is a priority.
I don't know what this "something" is.
All my GI doctors agree that without blood in my stool my condition was mild enough to do nothing about it. I don't know exactly how they would behave with this symptom, but definitely I realize I'm not the right person to give you further advice.************************************************************************************************************************ PumpIron ************************************************************************************************************************
-Although these are extremely rare, I have found blood and mucus on my stools and on the toilet paper.
I think so too. Today I've realized I made a mistake forgetting to keep my discipline in fiber intake. I will not forget tomorrow on. But it is not very different from when you were "normal".
Question; how are your normal bowel movements after this treatment? It seems like this would create a funnel effect on the stool..
I'm not so sure I'm suffering from muscular atrophy. At least not after practising kegel exercises for almost six months. But maybe I'm treading the ground of faith at this time wanting to believe this condition is generated by a sort of elasticity limit overpassed when I was suffering from bloating due to one infection with blastocystis hominis for more than a year. You know, just like an elongated spring. Again, I want to believe my anus got used to seal under huge pressures and then was unable to recover to a normal position (collagen or other fluid squeezing?), so sealing problem came up. I think in any case the condition won't worsen because (faith again) I think when you tighten your anus with this bulking solution is like you were lifting weights for body fitness.
I was curious to know about muscular atrophy in the area once the effects of the initial injections run out.
