Q.

What can be done about uncontrollable bowel movements?

I am a woman in my 60's and quite often I wake up in the morning to urinate and have a bowel movement. It feels like everything is out that needs to come out, but later, 1-2 hrs. I will smell poo and go check myself only to find more poo that has come out on my clothes. Is there a remedy or recommendation?

Dear Nona

I think a visit to the colorectal surgeon is the most likely to yield an improvement in your current situation.
