Woman with obstructive defecation treated in city

ODS is common among women aged between 45 and 60. Between 2% to 30% of people in the Western world are afflicted with chronic constipation, and 30% to 50% of them have ODS.

City doctors cured a Mysuru woman of chronic constipation, for which she had been consulting doctors for 26 years.

Hema (name changed) got the disorder treated recently at Smiles International Institute of Colo-Proctology (SIICP) in Mathikere.

Doctors at the institute diagnosed her with obstructive defecation syndrome (ODS), also known as ‘iceberg syndrome’, and performed a Stapled Transanal Rectal Resection procedure on her.

Hema is doing well after the surgery.

‘Complex disease’

Doctors describe ODS as a complex disease that is difficult to diagnose and needs to be treated in multiple ways.

Patients get a sensation of blocked defecation and will find it harder to empty the rectal contents. This will make them endure prolong and unnecessary
strain.
