Wondering if i could get some advice from a doctor with knowledge of hirschsprung disease or whatever my son may have,the doctors and consultants have been awful. My son is now nearly 5 years old,has had severe constipation since birth,vomiting after food or when eating,very poor appetite,underweight for his age,always tired,bones ache,looks pale. Since one he has been on lactulose (which now doesn't work),sennakot,Movicol (which he is currently on - but now not working). he has recently been in hospital for a week to remove impacted stools,he had two enemas,lots of movicol and was discharged only follow up to go to the constipation clinic,which i am not happy with and he has been forever on movicol,now i want tests done and no one seems to be listening.no blood tests done,no urine tests done....nothing.... had previously been admitted in January of this year for the same reason... I am getting so frustrated i really wish i had the money to go privately as then maybe something would be done. 2 weeks now since he was in hospital the movicol is not working properly he has gone back to barely eating anything,losing weight again.... I don't know what to do.... Please help...Reply Follow This Thread Stop Following This Thread Flag this Discussion
