Hi my daughter is 10 and has just been diagnosed with chronic constipation. For the last 2 years she has suffered with stomache pains and pain in her back. She didn't go to the toilet regularly but I never thought how bad her constipation was I just thought she was having her normal movements.
She has started taking movicol and is on 4 a day nd is still not going to the toilet. However she is soiling her pants this is very hard and dry. I feel really guilty as I was blaming her for having accidents and not telling me.
Only after reading proles posts on here do I have a little better understanding of the problems.
The .movicol doesn't seem to be making a difference and I am going to see my go about how much to give her. Her school just don't accept that having accidents happen and are out of control. It doesn't help that she has no sense of smell and cant tell when she's had an accident. I am going through so much underwear I cant keep up with buying them.
