I am 58, last period over 4 years ago. I have had all kinds of issues, but this one bothers me greatly. Namely, I sometimes have stool leakage that I am not aware of at all, until I go to the bathroom! Thank dear God, at this point it is really little, but I do not understand how can that happen when a person is not aware at all of any need to go to the bathroom? Less then two years ago I visited rectal surgeon for this and he examined me and said that it happens very often with hemmorhoids because your bottom apparently cannot close properly. He did the procedure where you burn internal hemmorhoids and I was really fine for a year... but now it started happening again, and it may be little worse. Years ago had colonoscopy which was all clear, and a year ago I did DNA colon cancer screening test which was also negative. But, this issue bother me very much - there are days and days that it does not happen, and then all of a sudden I have to wash myself twice . I cannot see it, thank God, on my panties or anything like that, but when I pee now, I am in the habit of wiping my bottom too, and sometimes there will be little stool or traces of it on the toilet paper - and sometimes it is little bit more that that. If anyone experienced something similar, please share your story, and maybe a piece of advice if you have it. Maybe I should visit the doctor again? It also gives me additional anxiety, from which I suffer as it is.
