Need some help & guide. My son who is 3 years has severe constipation. He was having daily poo when was baby, after consuming solid food at age 1-2 year we realize his poo pattern changed.
We then change his diet, giving him non constipation food, 2 serving of fruit daily, 2 cups of milk a day plus 15mg of duphalac (type of laxative) in alternate days. With all these his poo was between 4-5 days.
Even with 4-5 day poo, his stool seem to be ideal type.

Type 3: Like a sausage but with cracks on its surface
We have been to a specialist last week, done barium enema. Result was a heart broken, Doc told us he was suspicious of Hirschprung and advise us do biopsy to further confirm. Which I reluctant, because I cannot accept if the result was really Hirschprung and my son need to undergo a colon surgery.
I am exhausted and really don't want to get a colonoscopy done - thats the last resort
Advice please if 4-5 day poo is normal?
