Yes, it leaks involuntarily. I have been plagued with chronic dirreaha for months until the acidolphus treatment. The dirreaha seems to be better. I do have a few small hemorrids that itch sometimes. I had a colonspcosty last year with good results. This condition started a year ago, hence the colon proceedure.
