Please I am desperate. I need suggestions and advice for my 8 year son. He suffers from chronic constipation. The doctors office has not done anything for him in 3 years. Every time he has a flair up they just do the same- take X-rays of this belly and prescribe Milk of Magnesia for on week. However the constipation is always there afterwards and when he is on laxatives his stomach hurts and he gets bad D. His stool also smells really bad. Poor guy. Because he bear-downs so much I think he had some bleeding last time. I just got a call from school this morning saying his was in pain. I am a wits end. Can anyone give me some advice? I am going to try once more to see if they can send him to a specialist. Also not sure why in Winter time the symptoms get worse. Thank you so much.
