After a week on 8 sachets a day of movicol followed by a week of picosulfate the hospital have felt my daughter tummy and say she is still impacted. They want us to try 4/6 sachets a day of movicol over the weekend then may do an enema on monday. Thing is my daughter is refusing to drink that level of movicol (hence why they gave us the picosulfate) and I thought it took a few days to take effect anyway so surely it wont have had a chance to work by monday anyway?
Also does anyone have any experience with enemas I have no idea what to expect - they said they would sedate her.
I feel this whole experience has made the witholding problem much worse - before she would poo and now she tries to hold even gas and urine and says she cant remember how to poo and wont. They said we need to start getting her into a routine but with that level of movicol there is so much overflow that she needs nappies and last time it made her skin really sore and broken which also made the problem worse.
I feel like i am constantly trying to get her to do something she doesnt want (in general) & i am worn out.
It looks like the continual pain she was experiencing was due to a uti and not the constipation anyway!
