Bowel Incontinence: Start The Conversation!
March 1, 2013•9 min
Let's start the conversation about bowel incontinence, one of America's least talked-about medical conditions and little wonder, considering that we're discussing the inability to control leakage of contents from the rectum. Yikes.Why start the conversation? Because there are nearly 18 million American adults, about 1 in 12, who have bowel incontinence, people whose lives may be improved, but they're often embarrassed, ashamed and hiding the problem, even from intimate partners and their healthcare providers, when there are answers and treatments available that can give sufferers realistic expectations of living a better quality of life.
