Hello dear

Warm welcome to Healthcaremagic.com
I have evaluated your query thoroughly .

* This seems in relation with different issues as
- colonic motility related - external sphincter issues - stenosis anal
canal or rectocele repair area .

* Needs proper evaluation with digital rectal examination with or without
colonoscopy examination according to the clinical evaluation .

Hope this will help you for sure .
Regards .
