I have been suffering from bowel problems for well over 20 years since being diagnosed with a horseshoe fistula in ano. Over the years I have had many operations to lay open the fistulas, a temporary colostomy, defunctioning colitis, prednisolone enemas and now have IBS, Pudendal Nerve Entrapment and next to no sphincter left.
The last few years have been terrible due to consistently loose stools and numerous toilet visits each day and the pain from the PNE and scarring. My original consultant has since retired and I have been transferred to his colleague who specialises in reconstructive surgery and following an EUA last month she has suggested Sacral Nerve Stimulation might help with my control along with the pain.
Has anybody had this procedure for similar problems and did it help?
I have read about the procedure online but have probably got many more questions now than when I started.
