Hi there, I don't mean this to sound so bad there's no other way to put it. My son has had constipation for years. He started off by holding it in when he was a child and now hes 20 its still affecting him. He's not going to the loo properly for a few weeks and its all impacted up inside him. We have been to docs over the years and even to A and E where they gave him an enema. But this didn't clear it out either. I understand its very unpleasant for him and anyone else come to that, who may be suffering the same way. He leaks loose stools (Round the edge of the blockage )so his underwear is often stained. But all the doctor will tell him is to take movicol till things clear then take it on a regular basis. I have every sympathy with my sons condition but not with the fact that he could have sorted it out several years ago. I am scared to death that he will end up with serious bowel problems and yet he refuses to do anything to sort this out. He is also using it as an excuse to stay at home computer gaming rather than go out and look for work. Do you know if there are any other things besides movicol that will help with this?
