We have a 6 year old boy who has had constipation issues - wouldn't pass anything for ages. He was prescribed Movical and that seemed to do the trick, we had him sitting on the toilet in the morning and evening and actually having a poo which was like Christmas come early.
However he has since stopped doing it on the toilet and we now have a soiling issue instead. He must have some control as he's fine at school, it's when he gets home that the accidents happen. We sit him on the toilet after meals and after the accidents but he won't do anything on the toilet, but will then often soil himself again later.
He still has Movicol so I'm not sure if this could be linked to that or too busy doing other stuff / laziness maybe. It doesn't seem like he tries when he is sat on the toilet, though I guess it is hard to know how much effort is actually going on. He's a bit behind with his development so maybe that could be playing a part.
Looking for any thoughts or suggestions really as we are a bit lost! It is so frustrating thinking you are there with the toileting problem and then another crops up!
