Fecal seepage is a bowel leak that occurs after a routine bowel movement. This leakage is unexpected and the sufferer is not able to hold it in.
Symptoms of Fecal Seepage
Fecal seepage happens after a bowel movement, and usually without warning. It involves an involuntary release of fecal matter, usually without urgency. Sufferers of fecal seepage may not realize that a leak has happened until later.
How is Fecal Seepage Diagnosed?
Fecal seepage can be a symptom of an underlying condition, and it can even happen due to chronic constipation. It is important to see a physician for a proper diagnosis, and to rule out serious conditions such as colorectal cancer.
Many people think they just have to live with this condition, or that there is no solution. The Incontinence Institute offers a range of treatment options to correct fecal seepage and other bowel problems.
