Obstructed Defaecation Syndrome (ODS) Treatment

Keeping the stools soft, avoiding straining and the use of glycerine suppositories will help many patients.
Where the problem is due to function then biofeedback / physiotherapy is usually recommended to enable patients to regain co-ordination of their pelvic floor.

If a physical cause for the symptoms is found surgical correction may be recommended. Such procedures might include a rectocele repair  or ventral mesh rectopexy  for patients with enterocele or internal prolapse.

At all times Mr Radley kept a calm and positive manner and was able to explain the risks of the lengthy operation to me in a positive way that he filled me with confidence ”
