Complications

Physical complications are rare. However, psychological and social problems may arise, particularly if one is unable to get to the bathroom when there is urge.

Prognosis

How well one does depends on symptoms, an accurate diagnosis, and proper treatment. Many patients must try different therapies (some at the same time) to reduce symptoms.

Instant improvement is unusual. Perseverance and patience are usually required to see improvement. A small number of patients need surgery to control their symptoms.
