I wondered if anyone has any experience with IBS C & D with children?My son has had problems pooping his pants his entire life (between potty training age and now).We had been treating the problem as a Eurology problem all along, but the light is going on that because I was diagnosed IBS D in November that maybe his too is a bowel problem (IBS C & D). His diet sucksï¿½wonï¿½t eat much fruit or veggies (or anything much with fiber). Heï¿½s very picky and turns up his nose at lots of things most kids like. But he has pretty bad c and d problems (minus the pain, perhaps). He says he canï¿½t make it to the toilet fast enough sometimes and seems to always (every day) have poop in his underwear. His Eurology Dr. says itï¿½s called Encopresis, where kids hold their BMs for too long, causing their colon to expand because it is overloaded and blocking the normal flow of a BMs. When the colon is blocked, BMs must seep past/around the blockage and that causes some of the soiling in his underwear. We try to insist that he goes twice a day, but he cries because itï¿½s too hard or says he canï¿½t go. And then every few days he just explodes all over his pants (sometimes the toilet). We give him stool softeners and citracel drink (for the fiber). He does good for a while, but inevitably gets backed up. Any ideas or experience on treating children with IBS would be very much appreciated. Perhaps we need to take him to a Gastro/Colon/Rectal person like I had to go to.
