I have an 11 year old daughter who has suffered from constipation since she was about 1 year old, it has been a total nightmare. When she was about 5 she was diagnosed as lactose intollerant, she was then only fed foods that had no animal product in for 2 years, her constipation did seem slightly better but not normal toilet functions where resumed fully. On moving into the area I now live I took her to the doctors as she had got so bad she was just continually soiling herself, he referred us to a consultant at the hospital who said she was not lactose intollerant and she was just suffering from severe constipation. He prescribed a course of Movacol to clear out her bowel and then a regular does daily of the powder indefinately. That has been three years now of regular visits with no other outcome, just advice on diet which by the way is very good anyway, lots of water and regular visits to the toilet. To be honest I am very frustrated now and so is my daughter as there seems to have been no improvement over the three years she still soils herself, it is a constant battle to get her to drink the water but even when she does she still gets constipated nothing works. Can anyone offer any other advice as the consultant just dosent seem interested any more...........!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
