Feeling Of Having To Move Bowels

Most times, after moving my bowels I have the constant feeling of still having to go. I do go a lot but it takes many bowel movements until the feeling goes away. It is miserable. I am happiest on days when I don’t go at all!

I am to the point that I'm afraid to go out anywhere in case of an IBS flare-up. I know there are products like Depends for urinary incontinence but is there anything for those of us with IBS problems, fecal incontinence?

A myIBSteam Member

I too have had many accidents. It’s so embarrassing and humiliating. I thought I was the only one! And thank you for the tip of tearing Depends down the side. Very helpful.
