hi everyone, newbie here. was advised to come and ask ya wise women for advice.
i had a baby 11months ago and had been diagnosed with a 3rd degree tear. long story cut short... i have been having faecal incontinence since dd2 was 3-4months old. i got told 2 days ago when a pelvic floor specialist reviewed my case that i had in fact suffered a 4th degree tear! i am in so much shock. i'm upset and angry i wasn't told before.
can someone tell me please that there is life after a 4th degree tear... and most importantly - how do i cope with it?
