My son is 11 & we are on our 2nd round of disimpaction, the 1st we did in July and it seemed to work & followed all the guidelines, it took about 2 weeks and he was on the highest dose for about 7 days. He struggled as he suffered badly with constant cramps and nausea. We reduced and he started to feel a little better and maintained the dose of 2 sachets/day. About 2 weeks afterwards, all the symptoms came back and we’ve just started to disimpact for the 2nd time and it definitely seems to be working ( he’s going lots and we’re at the ‘porridge stage’ ) My question is ‘is it normal to have to repeat the process and other than an x-ray (which we’ve been recommended not to have) is there any other way to check how successful the treatment has been?
Also my son is tall for his age and he’s been given the paediatric dose and I wonder if he needs the adult dose-has anyone been in a similar situation? It so hard when they feel ill already and then the medicine is just making him feel so much worse but I know we have to continue any advice welcome. Thank you!
