For most people emptying their bowel is not a problem. However, we understand that many people may find bowel management has a massive impact on their quality of life.
Faecal incontinence and constipation and a long time spent on bowel management can lead to anxiety, depression and social isolation.
Rectal irrigation can help to relieve these problems, allowing you to live a full and happy life again – free from the worry of bowel accidents and constipation.
Symptoms of constipation can present as infrequent bowel movements, straining, a sensation of incomplete evacuation and the difficult passing of hard stool. This may cause other issues such as bleeding, haemorrhoids or anal fissures.
Faecal incontinence is unplanned bowel movements or bowel accidents. Incontinence can occur with soft/watery stools, but also with hard stools. Constipation and incontinence can occur at the same time when fluid leaks around stool that is stationary or moving too slowly.
Always fully assess the patient before starting rectal irrigation and ensure you have read and understand the indications and instructions for use.
