My 4 year old has been with holding for almost 2 years, we have had a very tough time with the bad moods and the stomach pain that it gives him. We were finally referred to a peadtrician in February and have just had our appointment (7 months later!) She has ordered blood tests and said she will see us again in 6 months and just to continue with one movicol a day. My little boy is only going for a poo once every 7-9 days and it is making him miserable. I'm sure it is not constipation though as his poo is normal and it isn't painful for him when he does finally go. He has also in the last 2 months started soiling himself as he is holding it every time he gets the urge, this is now a worry as he has just started school. The peadtrician has said that it might be psychological (I agree as it all started when he was poorly with constipation and his little brother was born) and said that the school nurse will be in touch to maybe have some talking sessions. Has anyone had a psychologist/ nurse do any of these talking therapies? After waiting so long for this appointment I still don't know what to do/ expect. Sorry for the garbled message, thanks for reading.
