HI Yvonne: I have an 11 year old that has severe l constipation problems. It's not from holdingit either. We have had many x-rays, tests etc. On the x-ray it looks like he has a small part of his intestine hanging down to block some of the stool. The hard stool gets cuaght in there and allows some to pass through. We give a daily dose of miralax to help him stay regular and drink losts of water! Ifyou want you can also see a pediatric Gi MD if needed. Hope this helps.

Wendy
