Incontinence

Bowel Incontinence

Bowel incontinence, also known as fecal incontinence, is an inability to control bowel movements, leading to the involuntary passage of fecal material.

This condition differs from patient to patient. In some cases people feel an abrupt, urgent need to go to the toilet, and incontinence happens since they can’t get to the toilet in time. This is called urge bowel incontinence.

Other people experience no sensation before passing stool, referred to as passive incontinence or passive soiling, or they may pass a tiny bit of stool while passing wind.

Urinary Incontinence Treatment

The treatment for urinary incontinence is based on the type of incontinence, its severity as well as the cause. A combination of treatments might be necessary.

Your physician will probably recommend the least invasive treatments first and proceed to other alternatives only if these treatments fail.

Types of Breast Reconstruction

There are two main types of reconstructive surgery: those using synthetic materials (implants) and those using your own tissues (flaps). There are also variations within these types.

The type of reconstruction that suits you best depends on your preferences, the effect you desire, and the extent of your breast cancer surgery.

Breast Reconstruction

If you are one of the thousands of women who have one or both breasts removed for a cancer-related condition, you will want to consider breast reconstruction surgery.

The decision of whether to undergo breast reconstruction is extremely personal. Most women cannot imagine not getting breast reconstruction. Some women prefer to put on a prosthesis while others may choose not to. And still others may go for quite a while without breast reconstruction and then come to a decision to get the reconstruction.
