So I looked over my anal manometry test. And it was missing the part of how strong my anal muscle are. Called the doctor's office that did the test had them sent over. Come to find out my muscle are really weak (I thought I was just pooping myself because I still had Botox left in me. Bit that's not the case. I have been having a hard time getting to the tolit (most times soiling myself if I'm not right next to the toilet. Leaking and wet farting) but since the Botox has worn off I am still having issues. So hopefully new doctor can help me with this. I've already had been doing PT kegals and what not for the last 2 months. So idk where this will take me. Enemas are also not helping with the incontinence
he's allowing you to continue enemas during the test?? seems to me that using enemas would wash out the markers along with the stool and negate the test. all the instructions i've ever read re the sitz marker said no laxatives or enemas can be used during the test.
Day 5 x-ray is tomorrow. Also Annie I have been reading a lot on the sitz test seems like most are now allowing enemas and mirlax to used during the test. I still think that this could mess with results. But I have never had constipation like ibs or what you had.
i do it every other week. not fun. i wish i was one of those people who can just push the mucus out on my own but i have pelvic floor dysfunction, so i can't--i have to use a small, fleet size enema. and even then, i have to strain to get it out.
