I have had 2 anal sphincteroplasty surgeries because of a 4th degree tear I got during the delivery of my second child in 1990. I had the first surgery in 1991 and it was not successful so I had the second one in 2000. Well, that one didn't work either. I am still incontinent of gas and occasionally of stool. It is an extremely embarrassing situation and has really damaged my social life and having a job or exercising with friends or doing much of anything with friends or in public is pretty difficult if I don't want to embarrass myself. Are there any new medical advances in the last few years that anyone knows of that might be able to help me. I have gained alot of weight because I don't exercise anymore to keep from embarrassing myself and I really don't have many friends anymore because of the same reason. I just want my life back!!!
