Any suggestions for helping my 4yr old go to the toilet. Now 10days since any activity took place - scared to go and holding on (crossing legs). Now has a very sore and red bottom too which doesn't help. Had this before 12mths ago - on laxatives all the time. How can I coherce her to go???? help please!!
She was discharged from paediatrician back in jan 05 'cause she was doing so well.
I have an appointment this afternoon at 5.15pm at the GP (after forcing their hand - receptionist said it wasn't an emergency!). Let's see what they do.
went to the Doc's - she agreed with my medication of Movicol (softener) & Sodium Picosulphate (stimulant). Spoke to the Consultant's Nurse Practitioner this morning - she has said stop the stimulant until the weekend - increase the softener - & when things start moving it shouldn't be distressing!
Let's wait and see! Many thanks for your concerns.
