I have a neurogenic bowel caused by a SC injury for 40+ years. I’ve been trying to use Peristeen on and off for 9 months now – having had no effective management program previously. I am really not getting the hang of it and it has made incontinence worse. I know my next step is colostomy but am not ready to give up on Peristeen just yet. I’ve been doing it in the mornings, but evidently not emptying properly because after my next meal there are major problems with not getting to the toilet in time. I do sit for a half hour on the toilet after pumping the water in, moving about, doing tummy massage, but a lot still isn’t coming out. Any advice/suggestions would be very welcome.
