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!

Re: Bowel Incontinence - Female, Age 26

I don't know if you will see this because it is some time later, but I wanted to let you know I am 25, female, and in otherwise good health and have the SAME thing happen to me. It is so frustrating. I hope you so this. If you do, please know someone else out there is suffering with you. Also, did you solve it???

Re: Bowel Incontinence - Female, Age 26

I'm 61 years young, and my heart goes out to you both. I've had this happen about 6 times in the past 2 years. I know how frustrating this can be. I kept a food diary for over a month and don't think it's related to food. I did notice this past time I had it, I was just getting ready for a doctor appointment and had to cancel a half hour before my appointment, because I started having cramps and diarrhea out of the blue. I think mine might be caused by stress.
