A member asked:

5yo has chronic constipation.doc said colons completely full of stool.in 3 days had 4 100mg collace, 4 fiber gummies, 2 caps miralax (polyethylene glycol) & no bm.wat causes?

A doctor has provided 1 answer

Relatively common: Stool retention is relatively common. Successful treatment requires a plan of scheduled emptying, long term use of stool softeners or wetting agents (like miralax), & work by the kid & parents for as much as a year or two. A skilled pediatrician or pedi GI doc can help. Good luck.
