quote:I wanted to share a treatment that helped me before taking Lotronex. I, like many of you, had lost a lot of muscle control causing me to have accidents. My doctor sent me to a rectal surgeon because he thought I would actually need to have surgery to repair the problem. It turned out I could be helped with physical therapy. Yes, physical therapy for the butt. It is called biofeedback and is basically using kegal exercises. You are actually hooked up to a computer that records your strength. It is really cool because you can actually see how much you improve each week. It is not a quick fix and did not provide the miracle results like Lotronex, but it definately helped. I had much better control after I completed the treatment. Ask your doctor about it. If he/she doesn't know anything try and call other gastrointestinal doctors or rectal surgeons. My insurance covered this therapy. Donna Deegan
