Brief Answer:
A single episode doesn't say much!

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks so much for this query.

If this happened severally, we would think of fecal incontinence. When it happens just once, it is incidental and most persons experience this at least once in their lifetimes. I will encourage you to stay calm and monitor only to see if this repeats itself. Future occurrences should prompt evaluation by your doctor for the prospects of fecal incontinence. If nothing else happens, there is really nothing to be worried about.

I hope this helps and guides. I wish you well. Feel free to follow up with me if need be.
