I don't know if anyone has experience this. After meeting with surgeon and him telling me that I have to have an Anorectal Manometry, I have been paying attention to the muscles in my rectum. My defecography showed great pelvic floor muscles(I am able to relax to evacuate bowels) but I noticed that my anus is tense a lot. I have been trying to learn to relax more but I notice when I do completely relax, I feel like I have to pee, even if I already went. Has anyone had this happen, what does it mean? I don't think this effects constipation but would like to know why I never feel as if I empty my bladder.
ETA if this makes a difference. I also notice that when I have to pee, it has to be right that minute. This has been ongoing so I don't think a UTI.
I am sorry if I posted in the wrong spot but just thought maybe someone had the same issues.
