Bowel Incontinence


Kelly's Story

An extrovert and a performer, Kelly was living a life of compromises and concessions as a result of her bowel control problem. Her condition progressed to full-out accidents with no warning. With Medtronic Bowel Control Therapy (Sacral Neuromodulation delivered through the InterStim™ System), Kelly is able to fully embrace the activities she loves.
