Makes it sound like a date for a rocket launch!!
What it's really about; my nearly 8 year old son who has an overactive bladder has more recently experienced soiling accidents as well or just having the urgent need to go, poor thing!
His gastro doctor sent him straight round for an X-Ray and it appears the whole of his colon is chocca block full so he needs to be 'flushed out' with movicol
I have experience dealing with movicol when my daughter was constipated as a baby but never had to give such high does initially
I know this is what has been advised by the hospital to do and the movicol leaflet even gives recommended doses but even the GP says its a brutal quantity
He has to start on 4 sachets increasing by 2 more per day until he reaches 12 per day . So that's the first 5 days covered then move on to medium term of 2 sachets per day!
The gastro doc recommended my son take a week off school to do this but we've decided to wait until the Xmas holiday
I wondered if anyone else has had to put their child through the disimpaction process with movicol and if you have any tips/advice as I feel we've been given instructions on how much to give him but not what to expect! Will he have to be near a toilet for the first week, will there be leakage, should I put him in a pull-up?
Any words wisdom are gracefully received
