I think i will buy oat bran.Someone's dooctor recommanded it here.I think it is not the same as oat meal.
I'm not in her head, but it sounds suspicious for her to casually say yes to something that world-class GI doctors aren't familiar with and to state it is possible given everything medical science knows about physiology and physics says it's not. Unfortunately, you didn't have the opportunity to ask her to explain how this sleight of physics could occur.quote:She very casually said yes. She said it is a form of incontinence. She asked me if I also had fecal incontinence and I said no. She said it was possible for gas to leak out (Flux) without also having feces leak out as well.
So far as we know, this is not how it works. You eat, then you get gas. After that, gas volume would fall off until you eat again.quote:The problem with not moving food through is it sits too long in the colon and that is when the gas problem develops.
..and fecal incontinence.quote:Then combine that with a more relaxed or weaker sphincter you will get leaky gas
Right now, we have no formal evidence that anyone has LG.quote:I politely disagree with your last statement indicating that LG is fecal incontinence.
Until someone gets to see a qualified specialist and that person detects it, there isn't any proof.quote:The proof is with those family members, friends, strangers who detect out LG.
Right now, nobody is calling anything.quote:Some GI's now just call it a part of functional bowel
How do you know that's the source?quote:If there isn't, then what is the sewer/fecal/flatulence smell that seeps out of my butt with no warning.
No world class doctor would summarily accept the existence of a condition not only unknown to no other world class doctor but one that defies what is generally known about how the body works. There would have to proof and lot of it.quote:And how do you know the doctor I saw is NOT a world class doctor?
Even if there were some way to have such condition, it makes no sense how this could impact it.quote:don't know whether I believe it is as simple as increasing fibre however.
Bizarre.quote:Frequent or involuntary passage of gas (flatus) without loss of fecal material, while not clinically defined as incontinence, may also impair a person's quality of life and warrant treatment.
