what have you tried...
what did they suggest

is he only in nappies cause of this problem or has he not been potty trained yet?

Changing his diet. I have taken off yougurts.
I have him in pullups so he takes himself to the toilet for a wee.

The doctor suggested just to give him lemonade for 2 days and nothing else then introduce food slowly like potatoes, pasta etc.

i thought a bit strange i did not do it but when i went back he had a go at me for not following his advice. I have booked another appointment for another doctor he is only 3 1/2 and is in constant pain
