Welcome and thank you for your question.

It is possible that you are suffering from a condition known as Encopresis or fecal leakage.

This is a condition related to chronic constipation. In some people, some of the stool can become hard and compacted inside the rectum. This causes dilation of the rectum and anus. Softer stools can then leak by the side of the hard impacted stool mass and leak out.

Sitting down will open out the anus even more so that fecal leakage is present more when sitting down.

There may not be any control over this leakage and you may not even be aware at fist that the stool is leaking.

Please consult your doctor and ask for tests to confirm or rule out fecal leakage. You will need treatment o remove the impacted stools .

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating 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.
