DD4 has been afflicted with constipation recently, and I have been visiting our doctor accordingly.
He prescribed paediatric Movicol for her, which she has been taking for 6 days, with no result. At all.
Worry worry worry worry
Then, kebam........Monday night, we had a result. And Tuesday morning...eight times.. I leave the rest to your imagination!
Luckily we had an appointment with the doctor anyway, and he agreed that this was an equally unacceptable level of bowel activity :-)
And yes, he has kids himself......
So now we are on one sachet of Movicol every other day instead, to see how that works, with a review in 2 weeks.
Ho hum. It makes a change from the children having 4 episodes of the winter vomiting bug between them in December, I suppose.
