In brief: Treatment
Treatment options have improved greatly and consist of non surgical & surgical.
Adjusting your diet and type of fiber may be useful for fecal incontinence. Medication may also be used. Pelvic floor therapy may be helpful. Neuromodulation, stimulation of the controlling nerves, has recently been approved. For more information see this link. www.drjkm.com. Services. Urogynecology.

II will add if you only struggle with loose stool and flatus, try eating 1 marshmallow per day. The size that would fit on a s'more. This will bulk the stool without causing the gas formation you see with increased fiber intake. Be sure it does no affect y if you have diabetes.
