I had surgery to remove an abscess in my rectal area and now have leakage both with urine and faeces is this normal or related
Thank you for your question. This is a possible side effect of the operation, however it isn’t something you should have to live with. Have you arranged an appointment with a Doctor? I recommend asking for a scan to ensure there is not severe damage there. Ensure you also explain your symptoms and ask for possible treatments.
We do have professionals contributing towards the forum who should assist you with this.
If anyone else has experienced incontinence after surgery to remove abscess, it would be useful to hear your experience.
Sorry for the delay in replying to this thread. We have been discussing with professionals and they have concluded that leakage of urine and faeces following rectal abscess removal is not a normal consequence. They advice that you seek medical advice from your GP for this.
Let me know if there is anything I can advise you on in the meantime.
