Hey guys new here and thank god I found you all I finally don’t feel alone! I literally have struggled to find anyone to talk or who can relate as none of my friends children have this! It started way before we started potty training but only really noticed that it was a big problem when we started but he was so constipated he would soil himself all day everyday. there was never a time he didn’t have poo in his pants. He was referred to the hospital who started a de compacting treatment and it has been amazing a huge difference but not perfect! He goes every other day but there huge and you feel like you can’t do anything until he goes as when he needs to go you need to get him on the toilet ASAP so not ideal however he stopped soiling himself so much better! He had a hospital appointment last Monday and they reduced his medication to half but everyday and a sachet of movicol everyday so still quiet a bit of laxtative and we are back to square one I’m finding him running of to other rooms crossing his legs stopping the poo from coming out (what he used to do allllll the time) poo in his pants again he hasn’t been for 7 days. I’ve upped his medicine so he will have to go weather he likes it or not but I’m just so worried this is never going to get better?? Is he going to have to rush to the toilet for huge poos for the rest of his life? Or have accidents, and the poo becomes so soft it goes everywhere! He starts school next September and I’m so worried for him!
