Hi again all,
We're currently trying to disimpact my son whilst its the holidays. We've done this various times in the past. He's now on 10 movicol a day and has been for the best part of a week (usually 6 per day) and he's still mega bloated and doesnt seem to be shifting the main constipation. He's also having up to 15 accidents per day! Not sure if overflow or just leakage due to movicol.
He has had chronic constipation for a long time (5+ years) & this has been treated with varying doses of movicol & dulcolax + fairly regular disimpactions. He's under a paediatrician and a paediatric gastroenterologist.
He does do poo on the toilet and its soft but not a huge amount but nevertheless, he still has a big rounded tummy (that isnt just being overweight- tho I suspect his Dad allows him to have larger portions than he should when he stays with him, I'm a single parent).
Our paediatrician is on leave at the moment but I do plan to get in touch when she's back. I could increase movicol further but honestly not sure if I'd be doing the right thing & also not sure if I can handle the literally constant accidents. 😩😩
