We’ve been battling wee accidents fir nearly 3 years now..... just when I think things are improving it gets worse. I’m in contact with a continence nurse and due to see her in a couple of weeks. Our last app we started oxybutinin for overactive bladder which was disasterous after 10 days -accidents got ALOT worse and she started having soiling accidents aswell. We stopped meds and have gone back to our usual routine of 6 drinks a day and sitting on the toilet 30 mins later but were no further forward and I feel like we have hit a wall with it. Too scared to try other meds now. Accidents vary from 3-6 a day and has a care plan in place at school. She has never had a problem with pooing. Goes every day. No straining. Type 4/5. But she is EXTREMELY windy. Everyday. She also has a bloated looking tummy which she has always had. She complains of tummy ache every now and again. Could she be constipated???
Any experiences/opinions welcome!!
This is my daughter completely, she presented 3 years ago with wet accidents. Went on oxybutinin which helped for 6 months then she started soiling and hasn't stopped since. I read a book about constipation and wetting and asked at a kidney scan for them to scan to if she was constipated. She was. She poos every day and it looks normal but she is constipated. I am very angry a doctor never considered this and we are waiting for a gastro appointment to try to find a way of dealing with the constipation as movicol and senna don't seem to help. I would definately push to see if she is constipated.
