    Sacral Nerve Stimulation(SNS)

    I have been doing some research into sacral nerve stimulation and would like to know if this proceedure can work for a caudia equina injury such as my own to attempt to restore bladder and bowel function.I would be grateful for any relevant feedback

    Are you thinking of sacral stimulation to prevent "accidents" or rather to poop on demand (which would likely reduce/prevent "accidents")?

    I just googled Sacral Nerve Stimulation and saw that it has a very good result for preventing INcontinence, but it wasn't clear that it helped one to poop on demand as I don't think that was looked at with that study.

    Hmmmm. Scott.
