    Suffering from spinal injury and bowel problems


    Anyone who sustains a spinal injury may potentially experience problems for the rest of their life. The nature of those problems could depend on whether the injury was determined to be incomplete or complete, and where in the spine it occurred. Some people find they have a spinal injury and bowel problems that stem from that injury.

    Paralysis that occurs in the lower half of the body can lead to problems in this area. Since the sense of feeling is lost, the person cannot tell they need to go to the toilet. As you may imagine, this can make it difficult to manage this part of everyday life.

    Adjusting to a different way of life

    Since most of us take this necessary function for granted, it can be very difficult to adjust when someone suffers a spinal injury that leads them to experience bowel problems as well. It may become harder to come to terms with the situation if the person was injured and they were not to blame for what happened.

    Think of being hurt in a serious car accident, for example – an accident that leads to such an injury being experienced. If this should occur, it may well be difficult to come to terms with the outcome, since the negligence and careless actions of another person led you to be in this situation.

    Can you make a claim for your spinal injury and bowel problems?

    You can if you know someone else was negligent and they were responsible for your accident, however it may have occurred. The best course of action is to seek advice from professionals who have dealt with such claims before. Accident Advice Helpline is the best place to come to in this situation – and you are already in the right place to find out more.
