This is an embarressing topic but I figured someone here might know what is going on. I had a cervical fusion on C6/7 - T1 on Feb '08 and a lumbar fusion L 4/5,6/7 - S1 w/laminectomy in Oct '08. A few months ago I started having a loss of bowel function every once in awhile. It has started to get worse happening almost every day. It is not a complete loss but enough to be uncomfortable. Bladder control is ok. Has this happened to anyone and is this related to my spine injury? I am only 48 years old. This isn't supposed to be happening for 30 more years!!
Thanks for any help!!
