Food affects the consistency of a stool and how quickly it passes through the digestive system. If the stools loose and watery, you may find that eating high-fibre foods adds bulk and makes stool easier to control.
If the stools are well-formed, you may find that high-fibre foods act as a laxative and contribute to the problem.
Foods and drinks that may enhance the problem are those containing caffeine like coffee, tea or chocolate which relaxes the internal anal sphincter muscles.
Here at Fico Centre we arrange out patient appointments for patients who have tried the above and are still suffering from long term FI. Secca Therapy is a new minimally invasive treatment and is available at locations throughout the UK.
