Hi Stressedmum - I am a paed nurse who specialises in bladder/bowel problems. Is he on a bowel training programme ?? Delayed bowel control affects many kids with hd as the nerve supply to their bottom is affected - is he on any medication? You need to check if he is soiling so much because he is bunged up - he will then need laxtive treatment or soiling because the poo goes through his bowel too quickly when something like imodium may help
I am away from tomorrow for the next few weeks but if you want any more advice do give me a ring at the charity where I work - PromoCon 0161 607 8219 and I will speak to you when I get back or send an email to info@promocon.co.uk :-)
