Has anyone got a satisfactory answer to why their child has chronic constipation? My daughter has been on medication for years now with barely any change. I have yet to get a reasonable answer as to why she has it. The inconvenience nurse said it was because parents are so busy these days that they don't get time to toilet train!!!! I only started work last year part time as I had to be 'on call' to clean my poor daughter up (now 6 yrs), so I was non too impressed with this answer. Or its just 'one of those things' really doesn't help either. Anyone had a better answer??!!
