My daughter has been seeing a consultant since she was 3. She started off with constipation and then overflow. She has been on Movical for 2 years. She wears sanitary towels to school and has beetween 10 and 20 changes per day because she has had a poo accident. We no longer can just nip to the park as we always have to pack sanitary towels, underwear, wet wipes etc. This problem has destroyed her confidence and it breaks my heart. Some days it's all too much for her and she just sobs begging me to take away the Poo... just feel helpless.
The last consultant we saw told me there was nothing more she could do for her...very helpful! We have since been seen by a new consultant who prescribed picolax for the clear out and then three Movicol everyday.
Even though my little girl still has 10 - 20 accidents a day she is starting to recognise when it has happened. Her poo is very runny but we've been told she must still take three a day.
The new consultant has also put some routines in place for her, she must sit on the toilet for 20mins after breakfast, lunch and dinner and we must encourage her to ask for the toilet when she feels anything going on in her tummy (even if it's just rumbling). We are all sticking to the routine and we are seeing small results. We go back to the consultant later this month and I'm hoping he will also see some improvement.
Just wish there was a magic cure for this condition!
