My 7 year old daughter has never been dry. We have been to the consultant a few times who doesn’t seem very interested. She has had intermittent bowel problems where she souls herself that have always been resolved with movicol.
For the past 4 weeks she has been soiling herself so I have been giving movicol but now the accidents are becoming more regular and larger. She is having at least 1 large accident a day and she is just constantly wet. Could the accidents be because I’m giving movicol when is not needed or is it likely that she is still constipated and I need to give a larger dose? (I have been giving her a sachet or 2 most days.) she tells me that when it happens it just comes out and there is nothing she can do about it. I am so worried about her returning to school after the Easter holidays, there is no way I can send her in like this. Is it justified to take her to the gp about this?
Any help is appreciated.
