Does anybody have any advice please? My son is 5 and had trouble with stool withholding since march, we have disimpacted with movicol twice only needing to go up to 4-6 sachets for it to work. For a couple of weeks on 1-2 sachets a day he was going every other day and it was very watery but now even if I increase to 4 a day he still only going once a week! When he is on 4 a day he looks so ill and just lays about as he feels awful.
The doctor had given me sennokot for him before, thinking maybe I should switch to that? It's just going back to school in 2 weeks I don't really want him on a stimulant laxative making him need to go at school (as he gets in a mess trying to clean himself)
Anyone been in a similar situation?
