Hello. Thanks for reaching out. What you have experience can certainly potentially change the way the anal/rectal area functions. In an ideal world, finding a pelvic floor physical therapist would be a great way to assess if this is a pelvic floor muscle issue now or other types of issues that need further medical attention. Also, have you discussed this with your current physicians. There’s definitely help. Please check out our directory to see if there’s someone near you. If you still need help – let us know.
