Hi…I would love if anyone could help me with this.
I am 66 years old and have recently discovered a problem…I am scared of leaving the house in case of an accident. I have been having faecal “leaks” without even feeling or knowing it. Sometimes I will only see it and feel it when I get home from a day out!! Do I have a serious nerve problem or disease?? I don’t understand how my body can just not realise it is happening. I have bought some pads from boots and even they are sometimes not absorbent enough for it. I have had stress incontinence on and off before but that is nothing compared to this!! Could someone provide advice please…thanks
Sorry to hear you’re experiencing this.
Do you find certain food hard to digest or do you experience constipation and abdominal pain frequently?
You say you used to have stress incontinence, did your Doctor provide you with a potential cause of this?
I can also assist you on choosing another product if you need guidance.
In the meantime, feel free to read our blog on passive incontinence,which describes faecal incontinence without an urge.
