So just over a year ago we had a 13 yr old boy placed with us. He had been soiling day and night since he was five and we were told it was emotional and not physical. We started from square one with a referral to continence clinic.
They said he had severe constipation and that his bowel did not work. He had lost all sensation and did not know when he needed to go.
We did a disimpation last Christmas and started the long process of maintenance meds with pessaries.
Our boy hated the medication but stuck with the high daily doses and very slowly we started to reduce..
A year later and we have just stopped his medication. His bowel healed, his sensation returned and he hasn’t had any accidents since last January.
It’s a long slow process that at times we were tempted to rush. but he’s now a happy healthy 14 year old who is enjoying life without having to worry about having an accident.
Stick with it guys there is light at the end of the long dark tunnel.
