hello, you are just one one month post surgery, you will still have the effects of cord compression the symptoms will go eventually depending if the surgery was successful.
i would suggest get some physiotherapy done and some pelvic floor exercises which will help to strengthen your muscles and will be able to control your stools
hope have answered your query
