Thread: Complete or incomplete?

  1. #1
    If you do not have sensation right at your anus (within 1 cm. of the opening), which is S4/5, then you cannot be classified as having an incomplete injury, even if you have some sensation elsewhere below your level of injury.

    Long term use of enemas can be problematic with SCI. Have you tried other bowel management methods such as suppositories and digital stimulation? Do you have a flaccid or spastic anal sphincter? What is your bladder management method.

    I would suggest that you get and read this booklet on bowel management after SCI. If you can cath yourself, you should also be able to be independent bowel management without enemas.
