Like thouht they were passing wind and instead watery stool or mucus looking stuff comes out all over their clothes? That just happened to me. I have IBS and piles (in addition to other stuff) was wondering if this was a symptom?

Diagnosis Oct 07 and then Aug 08: 2 Patches of Mild Chrohn's Colitis (unconfirmed)
Medication: 4000mg Pentasa a day, 5mg Clipper Steroid (Beclometasone dipropionate)

It's difficult for me to respond to topics like this and not make polite suggestions. So I hope you don't mind one.... I remember reading on a now defunct medical website, on their colon cancer board, that women and even ~men~ were both wearing Stayfree thin Maxi overnight pads. They are very long and go way up in the back of your underwear. They are also very thin, so they're not bulky. It's just enough protection if you have a few drips. I have started to pass silent gas before but realized it was more than gas. If I had one of these maxi pads on, I didn't need to change my underwear. Only the pad.

I am now entering Menopause and having sporadic periods. But I still buy these maxi pads! I think I always will. My entire goal has been to not need Depends. But these maxi pads just give me extra confidence when things aren't well or on long car trips.

Not sure if it's a symptom or not. I ended up with IBS like symptoms because I've had rectal cancer, about all of my sigmoid removed, 15 inches of my colon removed and my gall bladder taken out. It's been going on for 9 years now........

Hello and Welcome,

Yes I have had accidents when I did not expect them but I was at home the couple of times they were nasty.  I too have the minipads and if I feel I am having a flare or really stressing I take some with me as well as go prepared ahead of time.

Take care
