Brief Answer:
You might have stool incontinence!

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

I have reviewed this information fully. It is suggestive of fecal incontinence. This happens when stool leaks out. It often occurs with liquid stool or if you get constipated for long times. I will suggest that you get evaluated, first by your family physician, and then a gastroenterologist if need be.

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