    Bowel leakage after program

    Lately, my program has not had much bulk and as a consequence I have leakage some time after I'm done and dressed, thus ruining my day. I take Ducosate Sodium every night for softening. My question is, Should I add more fiber...maybe a supplement or cut down on the softener?

    Tigger, give us more information.

    What is your level of injury?
    Do you have a flaccid or spastic anal sphincter muscle?
    What meds are you taking?
    What is your diet?
    What do you do for your actual bowel care?
    Do you do bowel care in bed or on the commode or toilet?
