I have been invited to participate in a study along with 10,000 others to find out how people with IBD have problems with bowel control.apparently 2% of the general population have faecal incontinence which impacts heavily on there lives but there is no information available on how the issues affect people with IBD Iam so up for doing this study as I have stuggled with this for 30 yrs.

That's great! What an important study. It's about time control issues were recognised, so I'm glad someone has decided to study it.
