Hi. I am literally at a loss. I've never been in this position before, although I'm told this is relatively common, I'm having a hard time managing it.
My daughter who is 5 passed a hard stool 5 days ago, which has obviously caused her pain, and since then has refused to sit on the toilet or try and have a poo. She is really not well from holding it in and I've been given laxido which is the same as movicol. I have given x2 on first day x4 on 2nd day and x6 on 3rd day and will up it to x8 tomorrow.
She has had 3 days of this and still nothing. She is now holding in her wee 'incase she does a Poo'. She is occasionally going to the toilet but sometimes just wetting herself.
Will the laxatives force a movement? Will she have to sit on the toilet in the end? She is so scared of it hurting again and she is so poorly from keeping it in, she's been in bed with it for the past 3 days. There's no chance of her getting to school. She's irritable and doesn't want any affection. She just wants to be left alone and it's breaking my heart. Its so not like her to be like this and I know its because shes in discomfort... There is no way she is allowing this poo out!!!
Does anyone have any answers to my questions or tips.
