In brief: Depends
Fecal incontinence can be mild and have little effect on your daily life.
On the other hand it can be severe enough to prevent someone from being able to perform normal daily activities like working, shopping or exercising. Some patients cannot perform any activity that does not allow immediate access to bathroom facilities.
