In brief: No
While morbid obesity can result in a variable degree of urinary incontinence, especially in women, it does not cause fecal incontinence.
If you have developed fecal incontinence you should see your primary care physician, who can initiate the appropriate work-up and refer you to a specialist if indicated.
