Two year old with constipation

Hi... My two year old has suffered with constipation for over a year now. He can go days without pooping, I have even taken him to ER before, because after 5 hours of constant crying, I had to do something! They sent me home and told me to keep doing what I'm doing!
He drinks prune juice, eats prunes, has oatmeal, has fruit and vegetable snack pouches throughout the day, the doctor put him on medication, but when on it he was pooping water, if I lowered the amount or stopped it, he got constipated again.
On his two year well baby, I told the doctor that I thought maybe he was intolerant to dairy. He has been put on lactaid, no yoghurts, cheese etc, which for a couple of weeks seemed to be working great... But he is stuffed up again, we are on day three with no proper poops (just marks in diaper) and he seems to be struggling again. This in turn makes him lose his appetite so I can't get the extra good stuff in him!!
Anyone had this problem and have any advice?
