Elaine,
If the "tank to bowl" bolts are leaking, they may need tightening.
Things to check if that doesn't work.

Remove the bolts, and check the china, sometimes I sand it with emory cloth to knock down rough edges.
The rubber washer should be smooth and clean,
(no plumbers putty here!)

: Two small bolts beneath the Toto Drake toilet are leaking. I believe they connect the tank to the toilet.
: I wonder if I should try tightening, etc. or would be better off ordering new parts, like a seal or something.
: I'm healing from hip surgery and can't afford to disable the toilet by doing something stupid.

: Should I call a plumber or is this something simple to fix?

: Thanks, Elaine
