10 year old son still poops in his underwear

Lynne - posted on 08/25/2010 ( 2 moms have responded )




Does anyone have experience with their child resisting sitting on the toilet to poop? My son says it hurts so he doesn't want to but then it leaks out in his underwear. We've already been to the family dr. and he does not have a blockage or constipation. He seems that he has decided he would rather be dirty all the time than use the toilet. Can anyone help?

Take him to the gastro doctor he sounds he Encopresis you can look it up online the doctor can give him a stool softerner to help him go and you have to sit him on the toilet every 2 hours when at home and have him sit for around 10 minutes I went threw this it will stop good luck.
