Customer Question
Some years ago I had...
Some years ago I had a Gastric sleeve operation.. Since then I have developed some Anal incontinance. This is is an occasional problem But what I find most disturbing is I have no clue/urge of the problem when it happens, Mostly happens while standing having Pee.. It has happened while asleep - Just a bubble and always more liquid than solid.. Is this a problem that I must live with for the remainder of my life??

Visited a surgeon who tested my muscle and he seemed to believe ok. He then removed a Hemeroid ;thinking that was the problem. But when I get a wind urge I always am very concerned. And I have n considering starting plenty of wind - post sleeve.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
