Tests for nerves/muscle Anal Sphincter Muscle

Has anyone had the Anal Manometry, Anorectal ultrasonography, and Anal electromyography tests done? If so, did you have them done at CC in Ohio? My G.I. Doc diagnosed me with a neurological bowel problem and told his nurse to tell me CC should be able to do these tests, (He knows I am an established patient there) but did not tell me who to see.

I've been evaluated by a Neurologist here in IN, and at CC in Ohio, and neither found a neurological disease that is causing my problem. So, now I am wondering if my enterocele/rectocele repair caused damage to the nerves and muscles.

G.I. Doc says one muscle is too tight, another is too weak, and I have no nerve sensation, whatsoever.

Thanks,
Sheila
