Bladder and Bowel Changes

Bladder and Bowel Changes

The most dreaded outcome of the nerve compression over your back is the loss of your voluntary control over the bowel (stool) and bladder (urine). It may also present to you as difficulty passing stools for few days due to reduced movement of your gut as a result of nerve compression controlling the action. Once the voluntary control is lost, this symptom may suggest an urgent need for removing the compression over your nerves at the back. The need to see a spine specialist immediately cannot be over-emphasized in these bladder and bowel conditions.
