This is Dr. David

how old are you?

not being able to keep your urine and feces in is a serious thing

you could be having a cord compression

you should go to the hospital right away, their emergency room

and see a doctor and get a spine MRI scan to see where this damage or injury is to the spinal cord

treatment would depend on what is found.

how long has this been going on?

do you have a hospital close to you?

2 days. 30 years. Talk to the doc. They will maybe send a doctorhome to me becouse of mrsa.I have metal in my body.
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

I see.

talk to the doctor who comes to your home.

see if you need a CT scan of your spine.

your doctor may check your anal sphincter to see if your anal sphincter muscle is working or not.

spinal cord injury would cause urinary retention and inability to urinate and inability to control stool

Where are the pain sitting in the back if it is spinal cord injury would cause urinary retention and inability to urinate and inability to control stool
Expert:  Dr. David replied 3 months ago.

the spinal cord is long and from your brain all the way down your neck and back and lower back.

so injury to your spinal cord at any level can cause inability to urinate and/or loss of stool control

are you having these symptoms?
