We have been to the dr. She is on Myalax to help with the constipation she gets from holding. And because she holds...it also makes her wet herself. She will not change her clothes, and will sit in this till I tell her to go clean up! She stinks and the kids are making fun of her. SHe don't care! I have gone as far as making her wear diapers....she don't care about that either. We have offered great rewards...taken things aways...given extra privledges that she likes...taken away priviledges....nothing seems to work!!!!ughhhhh. She has to miss sleepovers even cause she will mess herself. She gets busy playing and won't stop to go. She has had xrays as well...no problems. She is very much loved and is the youngest of 4. There is no abuse going on either....so that is NOT the cause either!!! I am so out of ideas on what to do. She has flushed her pannies, hid them in drawers and under her bed...ughhhh!Answer Question

Part of the problem is the encopresis itself. With it comes losing the sensation that she has to poop. It explains why she stays clean when you send her to the bathroom and why she soils herself when distracted by playing. She may still not feel that she needs to go. Then she makes the mess and may or may not smell it at first. After the realization of what's happened comes the embarrassment of having done it & at that age kids often have the mindset of "If I ignore it, nobody will know" or "it will go away" I'm not surprised that she tries to hide the panties. And it may take 6 months for the colon to shrink back to normal but this is something that you will likely have to stay on top of for a year anyway. Another product that may help her too are pedia-lax fiber gummies. . Good Luck
