My son is 2yrs 2 months old and has suffered Constipation for 10 months ...
it started when i went away for a weeked and he had his first weekend without breastmilk...
3 days late he was screamin in pain and had a stool stuck I was a bout to take him to hospital when in dropped enough for us to remove it,
the problem got more fequent over the commin weeks desipte alot of research on web tryin all kinda things increasing his fluids (which just made him wee more) and changing his diet (we tried more prunes, brown bread rice pastas, water melon and watery fruits cutting out bananas and other foods)
and he was perscibe Lactulose by the dr, whom told me it was just something toddlers get at this age,
but it got worse as we weaned him on to cows milk and the dr just increased his does of Lactulose over and over ... and saying would be 2 years until he would ref him to hospital.....OMG was my reaction,
he passes stools most days but all are firm large and dry like rock the poor thing is in tears trying to pass them.
his hanging of funtuire like his in labour and there telling me this is normal at his age.......
so with yet more net research tried yet more diet changes no milk at all , goats milk, pre and probotics, excirses, massage still to little or no effect
he now has senna from the dr too but the dr is still refusing to give him a ref, but my Hv has aleast said there is a problem she thinks its \"slow bowel\" so currently trying to find out more on this as i am at my wits end and running out of things to try to relife his pain its breaking my heart,
I know this is also now becomming phyiclogial too and who can blame him when it hurts him so much, I am worried it will effect his happy go lucky nature being in pain for months on end.
not to meantion he starts pre-school in nov and i am worried if this isnt sorted by then what i am going to do
so any ideas or suggestions please i am so tried of getting no help from gp and i just dont know what else to try...........
i have read all the posts on here and noticed alot posted in 2006 how are any of those children doing now did you find any answers?
