Yes: Unfortunately, bowel issues are relatively common in childhood to kids at any level of function.

Some adults are affected but never bring it up out of embarrassment or an acceptance that it is their normal. ...Read more
My son is 7 & keeps having bowel accidents in school I spoke with his teacher & this still keeps happening why?
Likely overflow: This is often along term problem. It starts with irregular stooling and then constipation.Short term measures work for a while but are stopped too soon. The kid develops an over-sized colon and becomes less effective at emptying and is unaware he is leaking. This can take years to fix and you need to discuss it with his pediatrician or a developmental peds. Regular docs may not recognize the pattern ...Read more

My son is 10 weeks old, what would cause his bowel movements to be grey in color? He's formula fed and no recent diet changes.
Son is 5 weeks old & hasn't had a bowel movement in the past 2 days going on the 3rd day. Only eats breastmilk. What's wrong & how can I help him?
Likely ok: Your observation is not uncommon for breast fed babies. The definition of constipation is actually more related to the consistency of the stool. If his stools are soft or pasty he is ok- even if he does not have a bm every day. Early on infants stool very frequently, sometimes as much as after every feeding. That slows a bit as they age. If stools are too firm see your md for evaluation. ...Read more
My son us bleeding from his rectum when he has a bowel movement. His bowels are kinda hard n big could it be causing that?? He said he wasn't hurt.
Yes: Kids with hard or bulky stools or some that push out too fast will cause a crack in the outlet. This deposits bright red blood on the outside of the BM. It tends to recur as long as the stool is hard/bulky. Going more often, or using a stool softener like miralax can help over time. I've never seen a kid with a hemorrhoid. ...Read more

15 year old son takes a long time for bowel movements; 15-30 minutes. Is this normal? School has a problem with it (usually can wait 'til he's home.)
A Man's Retreat: My dad used his car and the bathroom as retreats from his life of hard work and family hassles. He'd stop on the way home, park the car and read the newspaper, saving the sports section for later, when he'd sit on the toilet for half an hour reading. We had only one bathroom. I've become very creative in finding places to let loose. Consider that as well as low fiber in the diet and lack of exercise ...Read more
Bowel movements are always runny/mushy. I get cramps when I have to go and I go about 5 times a day. I don't feel the same after having son 3 yrs ago.
Have hope.: You can improve, so have hope. You need to get into your physician and be evaluated to make sure you do not have an inflammatory bowel disease. A colonoscopy, blood work, and stool studies may help in your evaluation. Dietary considerations can also help. Start on a good probiotic and keep a food journal and get in for evaluation. Good luck. ...Read more
My son was diagnosed with appendicitis the results of it. He had an abscess on his pelvis blocking his bowel and bladder will he hve any future health?
Abcess appendix: Sorry to hear about your little gut. While his immediate recovery may take a bit longer because of rupture, there is usually not much else long term that could be problematic. Sometimes there is a bit more scar tissue in the area from a ruptured appendix. Which could make child a bit more prone to obstruction down the road, but if good surgical technique and debridement done, unlikely! ...Read more
