However, for the first time, we finally made progress through a combination of OTC treatments recommended to us by a pediatric pain clinic. While we tried every probiotic before, we had not tried VSL#3. This was like a miracle in keeping our son's painful attacks at bay. He now takes it daily and it helped a lot. However, he was still constipated, so recently we tried a cup of prune juice mixed with Miralax at night, and we removed milk (even Lactaid milk) and behold, his constipation has greatly improved for the first time. It's not perfect and not a "cure" by any means, but it is a huge step in the right direction.
Now, we want to find a support group for children going through this because our son has been through so much.
