For anyone who remembers me crying 😭 with my children about my son’s painful situation (severe impaction and in severe gastric pain when trying to take movicol and failed disimpactions and enemas)...he’s been admitted to hospital for 5 days by his wonderful paediatrician. We have also had excellent support from his continence nurse who has co-ordinated care amongst the health professionals involved. I phoned the ERIC helpline last week and had really constructive advice that helped me feel more confident in making health professionals listen to my son’s distress.
I don’t know what the outcome will be (hopefully a successful disimpaction by some means and a reduction in his pain) but at least his pain and distress are being recognised.
Thank you to all you wonderful parents for listening. I find it helps to share with people who understand the pain and worry associated with these problems.
Sending you all healing vibes 🤗
