Hello. I am Dr. Pennington. I am a colorectal surgeon.

What do you mean your bottom is leaking? Are you incontinent of stool or urine?

stool but sometimes clear fluid

How old are you? Have you had a colonoscopy?

Have you had a colonoscopy?

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no

Did you have children?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no children

Any surgery to the anus? Hemorrhoidectomy or anything?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no nothing

OK. Well, I would advise you to see a gastroenterologist or colorectal surgeon. You will need a colonoscopy, as it is recommended at age 50. This will give the most information, and you are due for one anyway. You should not have sphincter injury from childbirth or surgery. There are pelvic floor exercises that can really help with control issues.

What else can I help you with?

I am male

Oh, OK. Well, you still need a colonoscopy.

Tell me about the leakage. Any time? When passing gas? Just after bowel movements?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
all the time sometimes worse than others

How much leakage. An entire BM or a little bit of staining?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
various some days worse than others

Do you have normal bowel movements?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
it never been a problem

OK. Well polyps can secrete mucus and cause leakage. Prolapsed hemorrhoids can also. Do you have access to a gastroenterologist or colorectal surgeon?

I would start with a colonoscopy.

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
no access

Do you have a primary care provider?

I am sorry. The best I can offer is advice. I would seek medical attention if something is wrong.

You should be able to get a colonoscopy through the NHS. I worked at St.Marks in London in the past, and we did it all the time.

We work for stars, if this was helpful please rate the question with 5 stars.

Good luck to you. I will still be here if you have further questions.

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
is there no medication for this condition

Usually we suggest fiber. Like metamucil to assist with bowel movements. To make them more complete. You can give yourself a fleets enema. If the rectum is empty, you should not leak.

But, you need a standard screening colonoscopy, and I urge you to seek one.

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.
