I have two questions...having a finger put in your bum without much lube although uncomfortable not painful,would it do damage?
Second question: When using lube i find the next day i'm unable to hold my poop in as my anal cavity is still lubed?! what can i do to stop this from happening?

Nope, it wouldn't do any permanent damage - at worst, you might get little abrasions and soreness for a while.
It's obviously a idea to stop if anything's uncomfortable.
But the anus has a whole lot of nerve endings, so generally, in order for serious damage to happen, you'd be talking real pain first, not just "discomfort".

The anus has a sphincter muscle that closes like a ring, so it's not like stuff can just "slide out".
And generally, your body doesn't store feces in the rectum anyway - they just pass through on the way out, so to speak.
If you're talking about little bits of fecal matter then it might actually be worth looking at your diet - that can be a sign that you're not getting enough fibre or not emptying your bowels often enough. Sort that out, and the lube will likely not be an issue (although it might be exacerbating it).
If you're talking about full-on incontinence, though, you should see your doctor. And again, the lube probably isn't the issue.
