Fecal Incontinence – Other than Davening


I saw an answer on this site for how a person should be noheg when it comes to tefilah (if he is leaking fecal matter sporadically, he should make sure to have a clean diaper just prior to starting tefilah.) How should such a person be noheg with regards to birkat hanehenin and limud hatorah? (Each change takes 10-12 minutes, and normally would not change unless there is a smell or at a set time)



The answer that you saw was referring to davening, regarding brachos and learning, which are done throughout the day, he should check himself once in a while, not too often. Then as long as he doesn’t smell anything, and isn’t sure that there is something there, he can rely on this to say brachos and learn.
