Back again in need of some advice. The group home told me today that Gareth is increasingly going through
underwear. They say it's as if he doesn't feel a bowel movement coming anymore; that he doesn't feel the need to go to the bathroom. It just starts coming and then, he says *Oh, oh* and runs off to the toilet, but too late. This is not diarrhea, just regular stools coming and he doesn't seem to realize/feel the urge to get to the bathroom beforehand. Is this the bowel incontinence that many of you talk about? Is it a nerve thing, such as no feeling?
Thanks! Off to buy more underwear...
Mom to Gareth, 28 years old, DS/ASD
