During a recent move to our new home, my husband complained that his rectum hurt after lifting heavy furniture. It has proressively gotten worse - to the point where he can hardly walk or sit since the pain is so bad. He has now developed incontinence. He went to his doctor who examined him and felt he had a rectal infection for which he prescribed an antibiotic that has to be inserted via a plunger 4 times daily. He's only been doing this for 24 hours but doesn't seem to notice any difference. He has another appointment with his doctor tomorrow. Could he have damaged his lower back and caused nerve problems/a fistula or whatever?
