Hi. I'm new on here and desperate for our situation to be sorted. My youngest son started potty training in June 2014 and took to it like a duck to water. A few weeks later he regressed and has hardly been dry in the last 2 years and 9 months.
We've tried everything in that time but to cut a long story short he went into hospital in February 2017 for a week. He was unblocked (again) and was doing well. However, he's regressed again!
We're feeling very alone, lost and really don't know what to do any more. His Paediatrician isn't empathetic at all and the only reason he was admitted to hospital was because I threatened to complain.
He's been under the NHS for a year and we're no further forward than we were 12 months ago. All the tests he's had is a bladder scan last March and nothing since.
He started school in September and the school have been extremely supportive and can't do enough. However, we have no child care in the holidays as the local clubs won't take my youngest. This is really stressing me out I don't know what we'll do during the summer.
The situation is now effecting the whole family. My 9 year olds behaviour has changed and my husband and I argue a lot. I just want my life back and not to smell wee or poo any more. I want to be able to go out and not have to take a bag of spare clothes with me. I want to be able to get rid of the nappies he's in still overnight as night time pants won't hold the amount of poo and these are getting too small.
Is there light at the end of a very long tunnel?
