Management Tips

Although not all who have LARS have the same symptoms and responses, there are many similarities in how people manage these issues and symptoms. This overview of management options may help you find some improvement or may at the least give you some items to talk about with your doctor.

Remember, before trying anything, you should talk with your doctor if it is outside of what has already been recommended by your doctor.  With many options available and because the range of symptoms vary greatly, the best combination of strategies can only be determined with medical consultation and by trial/error.

Note also that not all treatment options are available in all countries. Again, your doctor will guide you through the available options.
