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

Fecal incontinence is likely due to the damage to the anal sphincter.

Lack of enough soft tissue support is a common cause.

Certain medications like Loperamide and lomotil can be tried symptomatically.

Modifying diet with more insoluble fibers by bulking up the stool and less loose stool may help also.

In resistant cases, the anal sphincter can be bulked up with dermal fillers.

This injection is usually performed by a proctologist.

You should see a proctologist as well.

Best wishes,
It was my pleasure to help you today.
