Finding a Treatment - Managing Bowel Problems

Finding a Treatment for Your Bowel Problems

With the right treatment options, bowel problems can be managed. Whether you experience constipation, leakage or a mixture of both, bowel management will allow you to live a life free from the worry of accidents or other complications.

The good news is there are lots of options for treating bowel dysfunction. These range from conservative methods, such as changes in diet or lifestyle, to surgical methods. The treatment option that is right for you depends not only on the symptoms you experience but also on your mobility, hand function, independence, lifestyle and, of course, personal preferences.

These treatment types will often be displayed as a pyramid and your healthcare professional will likely begin at the base of the pyramid before working upwards until a solution works for you.
