Hi everyone, my son is 4 and starting school in September 😫 He has suffered from withholding and chronic constipation since he was about 2.5 and thanks to lack of information from the doctors I have only recently found out for myself how to get him on the road to recovery. He is on movicol. (2 sachets per day) and I am just about managing to get him to do a daily poo on the loo (after about a month of using movicol properly), although he screams and doesn’t want to sit on the toilet 😥 The problem I have is that he is soiling throughout the day and I feel like I need to solve this before he starts school in September. He is still in pull up pants and I feel that I just can’t start him at school in these... he wees on the toilet fine.
Has anyone been in this situation and can give me some advice? Is the movicol causing the soiling? I am dreading him coping without me at school and I just don’t think they will be able to cope with the situation. He has never been a big drinker so I think more fluids might help him. Any help very much appreciated, I am at my wits end. Thank you.
