Sorry this is a long winded story! I'm new here!
My son has been having bowel issues since we potty trained him at nearly 3, on nurserys advice we took him to the gp to be told it was toddler diahorrea and put on Movical 4 sachets a day, after a year and a half reducing and increasing the dose they finally referred him to see a consultant Nov 2017, to which the consultant refused and rereffered to the incontinence team. Finally this year October he got seen by the incontinence nurse to be told there's nothing more they can advise apart from see a consultant who has again refused to see my son. So for the last 3 years we do a disimpaction dose at least twice a month along with his maintenance dose, my gp is no help every time we take him to be seen we get fobbed off with keep taking the movicol. My son constantly soils himself at home and at school, he has to self care at school due to the fact it's a tiny school and not enough staff and I go to the school every lunchtime to check him too. Has anyone had similar experiences? We are worried the longer it goes on the more long term damage it could cause. Also been advised to apply for dla but not sure the ins and outs about whether we would be entitled? Any advise would be great!
