A type of functional incontinence


Recommended Posts

I've been dealing with torn ligaments to both ankles, and need braces for both just so i can walk- with crutches. Which needless to say has made walking very difficult, and getting up to go even more so. I'm already urinary incontinent, and have occasional IBSD-D, but can normally make it to the toilet for going number two. Except lately. 

Decades ago I had a similar situation, and my then-doctor classified it as a type of functional incontinence. Because my legs weren't functioning, I couldn't hold it long enough to make it to a toilet. And that meant I was incontinent. Lol, and that was when I first started wearing diapers 24/7 too.

So that brings up the question. Has anyone else had to deal with this type of functional incontinence? And was it temporary, or permanent?
