    Bowel care

    Having been paralyzed for 2 1/2 years I'm still a child when it comes to being a quad. But my concern right now is my bowel care. Up until the last month it has been good. We do bowel care every other night and the output has been firm and the quantity has been good. My wife has been giving me two colase and two senecot per day. However, she has decreased that slowly over the last month to try to solve the problem. The stool has been coming out soft, so much so that it's been difficult to get out of the vault. It just sticks to the glove. Have any of you had this problem? If so how did you resolve it?

    You could try adding 1-2 doses of benefiber (OTC) which might serve to bulk up the stool. Also, if you prefer, try increasing fiber in your diet which should do the same thing. See if that helps.
