    I am convinced by the farting that you are recovering. Seriously, ability to fart is a very sophisticated activity that require intact sensory function and significant motor control of the rectum.

    Wise.
    Be careful not to confuse the term sophisticated activity with classy or you may not be invited back to any dinner parties.

    The ability to know when a fart is coming and to suppress or delay it, or at least get somewhere private, would be a useful post SCI skill to recover. Certainly not the highest priority on my list, but it would still be a positive development.

    Great news!

    Have to admit I never thought of farting as sophisticated -- I think I'll keep that tidbit from my young sons or I'll never hear (or smell) the end of it.

    Take care!

    Dr. Young - More clarification please....

    OK, I have to admit when I read this I laughed, certainly not at you personally JHOPE, but this is SO VERY NEW to our son and our family, trust me, laughter in a good thing. I greatly appreciate the openness I find here and truly respect everyone's trials and triumphs... we are new to this and just learning....unfortunately.

    Anyway... Just for clarification Dr. Young.. is it the ability to fart on purpose or the farting outloud that is the sophistacted function or BOTH?

    The reason I ask is that tonight, as my son was cathing, I heard him fart.
    Clarification would be greatly appreciated.
