I think she has impacted bowels. I called her Dr., they said to try over the counter kids laxatives. They didn't work. They made her gag, so she wouldn't eat enough of them to work (you have to eat like 6 chewables)
She is real uncomfortable & scared. She has been pooping that past few days, so I'm confused why all of the sudden....she can't pass stool. It pokes out, but then gets REAL painful for her to push & won't come out any further. I think she has impacted stool, where it gathers & gets real big int he colon & is almost impossible to pass.
Anyhow, would you keep your child home fro school?
I am keeping her home, i already decided. I'm just curious if any other mom has kept their child home due to severe constipation.
If it does not come out, her Dr. said they might have to manually remove it...ouch....this has never happened to us before. She has always had loose stool.

I would keep her home and I would try giving her things like water with molasses or prune juice. Even prunes or grapes to eat might help. I have a fruit whose DD has to drink apple juice throughout the day and she actually had to go to the school and request that they allow her DD to have it during the day so something like this wouldn't happen.
I would try to explain to her that while she doesn't like the medication she should really try to eat them because they will help her poop. She is old enough to understand this and might try to eat them if she knew they might help her.
