My son is 3 1/2 and has been constipated since he was 18 months old, the doctors have all said there is nothing physically wrong with him and his problems are all in his head. When it first started he had a bad anal fissure which was very painfull and since then he is scared of doing a poo, and wont do it unless he really has to, he still bleeds every time he goes, which surely cant be normal, can it?? We've tried everything including diet, he drinks loads, laxatives didnt work, everything the health visitor suggested didnt help, after 2 years of holding it in I dont think he knows how to do a poo and Im at my wits end as I dont know what to do to help him, he knows he'll feel better after hes done a poo and his tummy ache will go away but he still wont go if he can help it. He starts school in september and he's such a bright boy I dont want him to end up being behind because he cant concentrate on anything else when he needs a poo. If anyone can suggest anything to help i'd be so gratefull as this is making a lovely little boy very sad, and if I get told ''he'll grow out of it'' one more time i'm going to scream.
