Hi my daughters 3 and a half, struggled with constipation since 1 so was put on movacol early. Since then she has become a with-holder making potty training difficult... withholding made her compacted so been thru disimpaction over & over. She’s now under a children’s centre incontinence team who have had her on 2/4 movacol a day, 10ml pico sulphate, 10ml Senna... so she’ll sit on loo (reluctantly) & maybe every 7/10 days we get a proper clear out but this surely isn’t enough is it?
My family are now saying because it’s all so upsetting for everyone involved listening to her screaming on loo or crying in pain (tummy pain) I should look into going private! Has any1 else done this? I think it would be a box ticked that we’ve tried but really I can’t see what they’d do that we haven already tried, it’s her thats holding it & there’s no magic wand so all I can do is continue to put her on loo twice a day & hope for best... is upsetting when I think she’ll go then with holds so I get stressed & sometimes shout to try to make her understand she mustn’t hold it & not to be scared but it’s been years so I can’t see anything is actually working.
Any replies are useful thanks in advance.
