Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Incontinence is caused by the loss control ove the anal sphincter. They are supplied by the nerves coming from the lower spine namely sacral region.
Fall must have caused damage to the spine there resulting in nerve compression and subsequent damage.
You need to get a MRI scan of the lower spine to assess the extent damage.
Surgical option may be available following the MRI scan.
Medications like loperamide, and amitriptyline can be tried to help with bowel control.
Did you have any MRI scan yet?
