I'm about ready to make an appoint to consult with a colorectal surgeon specialist to hopefully determine if my sphincter muscles are the cause of my leaky gas incontinence and odor.

 

From my personal experiences for the past 4-5 years, I'm guessing it has to do with long-term constipation and straining that damaged my inner sphincter muscles. It seems to coincide with what fecal incontinence patients suffer from as well: https://colorectal.s...continence.aspx

 

Symptoms: often feeling of incomplete evacuation, people around me comment on odors especially if I havent passed bowel movements or have (had) diarrhea, small bubbly sensations of gas passing sometimes, Struggle to hold in all the gas (again feels like I only stop some of gas from passing).

 

Has anyone ever gone to a proctologist or colorectal surgeon specialist?  What was the result of your visit?

 

If our problems originate from damaged inner sphincter muscles, then supposedly just like fecal incontinence patients, the same kinds of treatments like sphincteroplasty would apply?

Here in Argentina and Chile i lost count about proctologists i visited trough more than 2 decades of suffering the same, only the last one found irregularities, made rectopexy and sigmoid resection, solved a lot of problems but not the bad smell and gas incontinence. I solved that through this exercises (not Kegel, completely worthless for me) and mountain bike. http://www.ibsgroup....my-whole-story/

 

Don´t tell the docs that you smell bad, they automatically will threat you as a loony.

Colorectal specialist sent me to a gastro for anal manometry after diagnosing me with fecal incontience but said that everything seemed fine. It's kind of ironic.

has anyone ever been to a neurologist? I've got an initial consultation in the middle of January. I know Montesanto was seeing one, but he hasn't posted in months.

Hi gasincontinencesucks -

 

You could always take Beano and simethicone capsules for your gas and charcoal pills to help mask the odor - they work great for that. Take two charcoal pills a day before meals. Keep in mind they may cause constipation (they didn't with me). 

 

And if you're still having constipation? I recommend Dr. Schulze's Intestinal Formula # 1.

 

The trouble with a lot of surgeons here in America? As long as you have the money and/or insurance? They will operate on you, whether actually you need it or not.

Simethicone does nothing but make you gassiet. It only works if your gas comes from the stomach and you'll burp it out.

Flossy, have you tried the 15-20 grams of activated charcoal a day with a 2 weeks lemon juice fast? I wonder if doing something extreme like that would rid the problem altogether. I heard some people who had extreme bowel issues who used a ton of activated charcoal and fasted except for lemon juice and they cured their problems. I wonder if it could help us.

No, I never did that, but it sounds like it might work. I used charcoal pills daily when I used to work at a pharmaceutical company, I usually had to sit right next to other people most of the night and they were none the wiser whenever I had gas. They really filtered out the odor well. But I never had problems like in the original post.

 

I did, however, use Intestinal Formula # 2 for like a week straight, two times, (but not in a row) which is supposed to clean you out and it did work well but it still didn't fix my chronic constipation problem. (I.F. # 2 has charcoal in it also.)

 

I do really like Dr. Schulze's products. I take I.F. # 1 daily. Will try more of his stuff once I get some money coming in again.
