9780801849169: Keeping Control: Understanding and Overcoming Fecal Incontinence (A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book)

Keeping Control is a compassionate, medically reliable, and thoroughly informative resource for anyone who wants to understand the possible causes of fecal incontinence, learn about important advances in management and treatment, and do something about the problem. Written by a noted Johns Hopkins physician and an experienced medical writer and editor, Keeping Control explains the mechanics of normal bowel function and describes the latest medical findings about what can cause incontinence, from pre-existing conditions and diseases to accidents and childbirth injuries. It thoroughly explains the wide range of treatment options, including remarkable successes with biofeedback and habit training. It includes special advice for managing incontinence in children and older people. And it offers important advice on how to work with your physician to take control of the problem.

Keeping Control also includes a glossary of terms and valuable information about contacting support groups and using additional resources. An epilogue by Nancy Norton, founder of the International Foundation for Bowel Dysfunction, describes the personal challenge of living with fecal incontinence and explains how she and many others have found the courage to cope with the problem and live life to the fullest.

Review:

"An excellent resource for the thousands of people who live with fecal incontinence."

(Detroit Free Press)

"A comprehensive resource. Among its topics are diagnostic tests; behavioral treatment techniques, such as biofeedback and habit training; and surgery options."

(Kansas City Star)

"This short, easy to read book is a sensitive and practical guide to managing one of the few remaining closet issues in healthcare. From the introductory story about a young woman with spina bifida who overcomes her urinary and fecal incontinence to the epilogue by Nancy J. Norton, the founding director of the International Foundation for Bowel Dysfunction, the message is one of hope and perseverance."

(Ostomy/Wound Management)
