The problem happens when I have to go out before Iíve had a BM and I donít have access to a ďsafeĒ toilet where I can go. It seems my body gets fed up storing the stuff and decides to expel it all right there are then, whether itís convenient or not. Itís not diarrhoea Ė just a very urgent need for a normal BM, which I canít put off.
Iíve seen a continence specialist who suggests 1) exercises to strengthen my muscles and help me hold on and 2) fennel tea and probiotics to calm my bowel and try and stop the urgency. I've only just started these so dont know yet whether they are going to help.
Iím just wondering whether other readers have problems with urgency and, if so, how they cope.
