Need some help! Rectal prolapse?

Hi all,

My DD is 18months and has a bowel condition which causes severe constipation. She's on movicol, senna and she's currently having enemas as the medication isn't helping her at all. For the last 2 weeks she has been straining for a bm all day and nothing is happening.

About half hour ago she was screaming in agony, I checked in her nappy and I can see part of her insides protruding out of her anus. The doctors are closed for lunch until 3 so I'm just asking for some quick advice as says it's not as serious as I first thought and is relatively common? Has anyone experienced this with their LO's? What can I do to ease her pain? Should i wait for dr's or go to a&e?

She is currently on the list for a colostomy bag but she also has a heart defect that she needs an op for first which should be within the next month so until then she has to suffer like this sad

I know nothing about this but I would go to a&e even if the gp could deal with I don't think anyone would question you going. Hope things improve soon

Just seen this and wanted to see how she is? My ds also has a bowel disease and just had the stoma fitted 2 weeks ago but we never experienced a prolapsed rectum but hope a&e were able to help your dd x
