- Use the right incontinence product-It is crucial to take the time to determine what type of incontinence product you need to use. If your fecal incontinence is only mild then using an incontinence pad might be enough. However, if you are experiencing or are even prone to experiencing complete loss of bowel control then you may need to consider using an incontinence undergarment whether it is incontinence underwear or an adult diaper.
- Always have a plan-Whether you are going out to work or for fun, it is important to have a plan. Many people carry an emergency kit that has a change of clothes, special incontinence wipes, powder or odor absorbing lotions, and their incontinence product. This way if the worst should happen you can be prepared to change your incontinence undergarment, clean up and neutralize the odor.
- Work with your doctor-Both chronic constipation and fecal incontinence are never normal. You should never feel that you simply have to live with these conditions. You should also never let your doctor tell you that there is nothing that can be done. Most health care professionals realize that there are treatments for both the chronic constipation and the resulting fecal incontinence. If you are not satisfied with your doctor’s diagnosis then you should seek out a different medical opinion. Keep in mind that while treatment can be lengthy resolving these issues can be done successfully and most people can continue with all of their normal activities.
- Seek out support-Today, the stigma surrounding these issues is not as deep as it once was. There are many different support groups where you can find support and helpful information from other people who are and have successfully dealt with both chronic constipation and fecal incontinence. Check with your local hospital, community resources, and even your doctor for recommendations. If you can’t attend a support group there are many that are available online.
