My son has had let's say intestinal differences since he was 2.5 yo.
Mainly the problem has been constipation. but it has evolved into cramping throughout the day, and loose stools. their will be "lumps" in his belly (fecal matter) that don't move much for a long time. He has cramps through out the day, and loose stools. He will have a solid stool a few times in a few months. It is sometimes very large. This is rarer and rarer though. Doctor's say it's nerves, because the cramping and constant loose but sparse elimination continues into the night at times. His condition seems much less serious than it has been in the past. I've been giving him fiber and exercise seems to help. He rarely has a normal b.m. but pain seems less troublesome lately, or he might just have become more embarressed about it. He still has to wear training pants because of constant loose stools. Mentally he's fine, but I don't think he will be able to go to school next year, and he's almost 6. We can't get a good stool sample from him because elimination is too sparse.
ANy help is appreciated, especially experienced...
