Bowel Incontinence - Female, Age 26

Hi Everyone,

I'm suffering from bowel incontinence which my doctors cannot find the cause of. If my stools are very loose, which they often are, I can't always control when they are excreted and once they start coming out, I can't stop them. I have to wear adult nappies and have had 3 accidents this week alone.

I also have nausea, cramping in the colon area (similar to when I'm constipated), bloating, gas etc.

I have been told I have IBS, so it could just be bad IBS, but I'm wondering if anyone diagnosed with colorectal cancer had incontinence as a symptom? Just trying to find answers

Oh, and advice from anyone else with fecal incontinence would be terrific!

Hope all of you are well, Thanks!
