My brother has been diagnosed with ALS and most likely the bulbar form. He has not had the feeding tube administered but he is becoming convinced that he needs it. My question is his loss of control of his bowl movements. He says that he has no ability to (pardon the expression) squeeze. Is this typical of Bulbar ALS? He uses enimas all of the time with varying degrees of success. He has lost about 70 lbs. starting at about 220 lbs.
