Hi everyone, This is my first time on a forum so apologies if I don't do something right. I'm at my wits end trying to find support emotionally and physically for my little girl, I've been fighting for almost 6 years now with her constipation, it started when she was 6 weeks old and she's now 6 years. The drs kept telling me she's just constipated tried lactulose and that didn't work, they just kept telling me it was common in children, but because it was left for so long she's now been left with incontinence. I finally stamped my feet and got her a hospital referral in June last year, she had blood tests but that showed nothing and they said she had chronic constipation and she had to have 8 sachets of movicol a day!!!! Great for being at school that, poor little mite. We had some clear out and she had a scan on her rectum and she's been left with 'mega rectum' (hideous name) but her rectum has been damaged and left over twice the size which is what's causing the incontinence. She's still in nappies she's petrified of pooing and pooing on the toilet, But she hates taking her medicine as she sees this as what makes her poo and what causes her to be in nappies, She's had some comments made at school about her nappy and had kids laugh at her when they get changed for PE, she now wears shorts under her dress' so they cover the whole nappy, it's been a fight to get school involved in her hygiene but they are great now, I just worry that she's going to suffer mentally more than what she is doing already! She would rather sit in her own poo than let you change her and I just don't know what to do anymore, I need some help in ways to get her to take her medicine, I've tried sticker charts, rewards, treats even her dad said she can literally spend what she wants in the toy shop but she just refuses, she genuinely says no to the treats. I have help from the hospital but I feel I'm going around in circles as this is the only treatment option they are offering, how do you force feed a 6 year old medicine 5 times a day without crying yourself to sleep at night and causes mental trauma to her, I just can't do it!?
