I got this dx from anal manometry test but haven't got an explanation other than that the Dr is thinking about doing Solesta injection. I can't find much about these. I do have incontinence but I also have severe constipation. Is that something Solesta can help with? From what I see it only helps diarrhea and incontinence. I can't imagine doing anything that could make constipation worse.
I also have rectal prolapse (external) and doing anything directly around anus seems scary as even when I do enemas I can see the prolapse worsen.

sorry i don't have any answers for you, Marleyma.  but i am glad your doc got back in touch with you to tell you his treatment plan. 

 

i've read solesta threads on here--i think mostly in the leaky gas forum?   but i imagine you've already searched for them.

 

hopefully you'll get some replies to your thread here.  or else you could post a specific topic about solesta.

 

it does sound like you have a basically good doc--as far as knowledge is concerned-- (although i've read your thread and others like it on inspire) and i've heard Temple is a good place to go. 

 

good luck with everything.   you have such a complex situation and you've been through so very much already.  i do hope you can find some relief.  


these are just my own thoughts. for expert medical advice please contact a health care professional.
