Just wondering if anyone has explored private treatment for soiling and suspected chronic constipation? We have an appt on 20th December which I'm trying to push forward, but I've booked a private consultant for 25th of this month to go to if we don't have any luck.
Our son has been on Movicol for almost a year and has a soft bowel movement daily (4 on the Bristol chart usually), but slips multiple times a day. The soiling is "classic" overflow (really dark, gritty, sticky, foul-smelling, impossible to clean) and this seems to be worsening.
The initial consultation with a private paediatric gastroenterologist is going to be £185, but we have no idea re cost of diagnostics and treatments. I know these will vary, but wondered if anyone had any experience so we could at least get an idea?
Thanks in advance
