Hi there,
This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.
I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.

Excessive gassiness is the problem --gas can stimulate the anal sphincter causing leakage.

Malabsorption syndrome is another strong possibility.
Malabsorption syndrome includes the follow possibilities:
1. Excess bacterial overgrowth in the small intestine known as SIBO syndrome.
This is not usually diagnosed by the colonoscopy.
Small intestinal aspirate can be sent for bacterial count.
Carbohydrate breath test (D xylose) is a simple test to diagnose this condition.
But, the treatment is much easier.
A 14 day course of Rifaximine improves the symptoms dramatically.
2. Lactose intolerance--- regular milk, dairy products.
3.Gluten sensitivity or celiac disease--- Wheat based products.
4. Chronic pancreatitis --- deficiency of the digestive enzymes produced by the pancreas.
5. Gastroparesis -- delayed gastric and intestinal movement.-- treated with metoclopramide or domperidone daily.
You should consider following low fermentable sugar diet ( FODMAP diet) to reduce your symptoms.
Please go to this link for detailed information:

Please also include prebiotics like Inulin daily to keep your colon acidic which prevent gas producing bacteria.
Also take a probiotic ( lactobacilli, bifidobacterium) daily to restore intestinal microbial balance.
Culturelle 30 Counts twice daily should be fine.
Simethicone and activated charcoal can be taken before meals to reduce gas and bloating.
Lastly, there can be chronic infections like C difficile, Giardia, Amoeba, Aeromonas etc.
These infections may be diagnosed by checking 3 stool samples taken on successive days.
They will require proper antibiotics for the treatment.
Please discuss these possibilities with a gastroenterologist.
Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
