How do I detect a defecation disorder? Severe, infrequent or incomplete evacuation during defecation can cause considerable suffering. For example, there is a need for strong pressing and sometimes even finger-assisting (digitation, manual assistance).
Do you need to have surgery for a defecation disorder? No, there are a variety of simple non-surgical treatment options. These options can often achieve a significant improvement and thus restore a good quality of life. If surgery is necessary, various surgical procedures include abdominal surgery (rectopexy with mesh) or procedures on the anal canal (transanal).
