My son is 17 years old and I feel a complete failure.
On and off encopresis all his life. Toilet trained fine- just doesn't seem bothered. Hides underwear, he even discusses the situation with me as I try to be supportive, however my husband just feels he's lazy. The anxiety in me is huge so goodness knows how my son feels. I cannot have this affecting his adult life so I have today referred to CAMHS myself and am going to the GP again.
Over the years we have done toilet sitting regimes, laxative regimes, paediatricians appointments in multiple who say there's nothing wrong.
Has anyone else battled with this so late in life? I really don't need my son to isolate himself- life is too precious.
