Hi.Welcome to just answer. I am here to answer questions for education and information. I will respond shortly with an answer, or a question for you
Has she seen a neurologist
Has she had an MRI of the lower spine?
Has she had an EMG/NCS test
Possible but unlikely.
The idea that generalized cord compromise would exclusively affect the bowel is not likely at all.
There would be other symptoms.
However, the EMG/NCS would be needed to confirm that this is not the case.
Given her situation she should
a. see a neurologist
b. have an MRI of the lower spine.
c. Have the EMG/NCS.
