Hello!!! Feeling really helpless. At four days old my son had a massive seizure and was in a coma for seven days straight. Now that he is almost 6 we are seeing residuals from his brain trauma as a baby. He has short-term memory loss, and learning delays, With an unknown diagnosis.
My son Jake was 3 1/2 years old when he was fully potty trained. Jake was 4 1/2 when he started regressing and not using the toilet . The summer before we started kindergarten he started having poopy accidents. He doesn't even realize that he has had an accident in his pants. It happens multiple times within the school day. Our school team has no idea how to help him. His teacher will take him to the bathroom multiple times with no success. He has accidents at home also. We have used every incentive under the sun and nothing has worked. We are in the process of getting an allergy test done and also checking w/ our neurology team to see if it's something underlining. I feel like I do not have a clue how to help my son. Do any of you out there have a similar story or any suggestions at all? I would greatly appreciate it, thank you so much. - Terry
