Please help me. I suffer from anal leakage and it is extremely embarrassing. It does not happen every day and I am wondering if it could be caused by specific foods that I eat.
I am 62 an overweight.
Thank you

Mary, it’s difficult to say what the problem is without examining you first. It might be due to an anal sphincter problem or an anal abscess, so the best would be to see a surgeon and have it sorted out. Good luck.
