You have retention of urine with over flow .
Thanks for your query,based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have incontinence of urine and feces .
I shall be happy if you can post me few more details to help me in making comments on your problem.
1) Do you have symptoms like increased frequency ,urgency,poor urine stream etc since a long time suggesting of Enlarged Prostate which is common at this age?
2) Have you ever been investigated for Enlarged prostate?
Based on your symptoms I would state that you have Chronic Retention of Urine with overflow what is called as Retention with overflow .
Please constult qualified Urologist for clinical and digital rectal examination and get following basic tests done to confirm the diagnosis.
1)Routine urine and urine culture.
2) Ultrasound Scanning of abdomen and pelvis with specific mention of post void residual urine .
4) Serum PSA.
Further treatment will be decided by concerned Urologist depending upon the clinical findings ,results of these tests and final diagnosis.
Incontinence of feces that you have is due to simultaneous contraction of the rectum due to same nerve innervation .
