My fecal incontenence

I suffer from fecal incontenence and it is so scary. I'm scared to go places and afraid that even if I'm wearing pads/diapers the smell will be evident. How does anyone deal with that issue? There is a new procedure called Interstim but has restrictions and seems pretty invasive to me. They insert basically a pacemaker in your back side and you carry this device around. Sounds too complicated for me and not sure Medicare will pay for it. I feel so alone since no one else I know has this. I feel so much better on these forums because I know I'm not alone. Mine was caused by birthing two big babies and constant constipation all my life. Once again, even wearing a diaper would cause odor -- is there tips on this?
