Welcome to Healing Well! Sorry to learn of your bowel problems.
When you say you have fecal incontinence do you mean you cannot make it to the toilet to have your bowel movements? If so, I am quite surprised that your doctors have not investigated the problem to date. Incontinence means that you do not have voluntary control of your bowels, ie you cannot make it to the toilet.
If you meant that your problem is the number of bowel movements you have a day, then there are many problems that cause excessive movements. Really the only way to get to the source of the problem is to have a thorough evaluation by a gastroenterologist.. I'm glad that you will be seeing one. Do you have any other symptoms like pain, cramping, excessive gas, heartburn? Any other symtpoms need to be reported to the GI so he will know to run the proper tests.
Good luck and let us know what he says.
