Bowel and bladder accidents—big time, big time concerns; they don't happen very often, but they're big concerns—and I would wager, that for most people with a spinal cord injury, not all but most, especially the higher level spinal cord injury, it's a concern. And it's a concern for two reasons: one, it's difficult to manage, and two, it's embarrassing. You know, we learn to take care of our bowel and bladder functions during infancy or as toddlers; you don't expect to have to think about that as an adult. So to always be confronted by the thought, is an annoyance. It's manageable, but it's an annoyance.
