Hi My son cannot poo at all this has been the case since before Christmas I have to give him a enema Fleet ready to use enema. I have tried everything with him and I am worried sick about him. I spent Christmas at two major hospitals trying to get help. I believe if I don't give the enema he would die. I had ex rays done on his belly they said he has a lot of poo in his bowels more than any child they have seen then they said to use the Fleet enema and dose him everyday 20ml of duphalac a child normally has 5-10mls the doctor said I could go up to 50mls. I been giving him the 20 ml dose nothing happens. The poo comes out like big rocks the size of 50cent piece and try getting this out of a hole the size of a ten cent piece. Also the poo gets stuck further up his bowl not in rectum so I have to use the enema to get it to come down. I am a total Nevis re-ck and am severely depressed from the stress of this.
Can any one give me advice help or something would be great. May be a Doctor mite see this and have some idea to what is happening.
I also keep a diary on his poo habits god this is driving me crazy!
Help Please

  • You should talk to your doctor about fecal hoarding. It's most common in children your sons age then you might think.Don't be scared. Your son sounds like he has a stretched out case of fecal hoarding.
