Call your doctor: Rectal incontinence should not be happening at your age unless there is another reason. Call your doctor immediately, and have it looked at, or if you're unable to do so, then you must go to the emergency room and have this explored. This will not stop by itself unless you know the cause of the situation to render it short lived.
