I've been a member here for a while but haven't logged on lately. I have an 11-year-old with long-standing chronic constipation with overflow soiling. The soiling has been happening since she was toilet trained at 3. She had a 6 month period under the continence clinic when she was 7 and has been under the hospital for the last 3 years. It's been very frustrating as all they've done is given her laxatives in vary doses and nothing has improved in all that time. I've never been 100% convinced that it's constipation.
On our last appointment, I got them to agree to give her an abdomen scan and an endoscopy. I'm really worried that they may find something nasty - but at the same time I'm worried it won't show anything at all and we'll be no further forward than we were 3 years ago.
Has anyone else had any experience with these tests? Even if you've had bad news I'd like to know what I could be facing, please.
