Hello, I recently. Posted about starting toilet training but I think we still have an issue with impacted poo.
My son started on movicol last May after becoming very constipated and doctor feeling tummy. We never got clear direction on how to use movicol from GP apart from its trial an error. We thought it was only a temporary measure and after 10 months weaned him off it completely. He's not had any now for nearly 3 months but has poo in his nappy at every change. It is sticky and gritty. Always smells really bad (I know poo stinks but still!) As another poster pointed out this could be a sign he is still impacted. I've not heard term maintenance dose before and feel at a loss! Should we go for another impaction and then take his dose down again? He is 3 soon I want to get us all in a good place to manage his bowel! Feel like going round in circles as GP doesn't give much more advice apart from you will know what will work for you 🤷♂️
