  • I would try marlax to make him go and make it easier in case the battery is causing trouble. Some fiber can even cause constipution and even dairy products. I know cause girl does the same thing. Even use a stool to prop their feet up. If to young for that lay them down and pedal their legs like a bicylcle.

  • Prune juice is a good poop maker....maybe you can give him a glycerin suppository to speed things up.... Not sure though, you mught want to ask his pediatrician.

  • the doctors wanted to give him an enema at the hospital then send him home but we live an hour or so away from the hospital and they said he will probably poop alot within the first 10-15 minutes of getting sorry but if they wanted to do it at the hospital then they would have to let us stay there till he was done pooping so much....

  • You can give him a suppository at home. I am just surprised they let kid with a battery in his belly leave the hospital at all. What if it explodes? The battery acid has to be dangerous. Shows how much I know.

  • i thought the same thing carriePM....they were going to extract it but it supposedly moved into his colon so they sent us home....i was pissed because of the fact that they said they were going to extract it,they had everything ready to do the surgery and we had drivin an hour or so just to get there,but they sent us home
