BMHS fecal incontinence program

Published September 24. 2013 05:00PM

Blue Mountain Health System will offer a community education program on Fecal Incontinence at 6 p.m. Monday, Sept. 30, in the ground floor community room at the Gnaden Huetten campus at 211 N. 12th St., Lehighton.

Colorectal surgeon David Bub, MD, FACS, FASCRS, will discuss fecal incontinence, a syndrome that involves the unintentional loss of solid or liquid stool. Common causes include diarrhea, constipation, surgery, and muscle or nerve damage which may be associated with aging or with giving birth. It is one of the most psychologically and socially debilitating conditions in an otherwise healthy individual. It can lead to social isolation, loss of self-esteem and self-confidence, and depression. Because fecal incontinence can be distressing, it's important to take steps to deal with it. Treatments are available that can give you some relief from your symptoms, help improve your quality of life and raise your self-esteem. Find out what causes incontinence and what can be done to correct the problem.

Registration is required at (610) 377-7070.
