My 10 year old has always been a bit stopped up. We've tried everything we can. Miralax (too much of it gave her diaherrea, could never find a balance with it), eating lots of fiber rich foods (from fruits, veggies, multigrain foods....) She's been to the doctor a couple of times with it, and he just puts her back on Miralax.
The problem is, she has this constant poop thing going. She has wet farts; dark, dried up poo; poops in her panties, in the pool....
A little more about her. She has Down's Syndrome. She has some behavioral problems (it's not ADHD). She does take thyriod medicine, allergy medicine, and Risperdal for behavioral issues, and constant sinus trouble. We recently (February of this year) took her off ADHD meds, realizing that she isn't ADHD, and she finally gained a signifiant amout of weight that she very much needed. (She weighed 45 pounds for 2 years, and was about 43" tall). Now, she weighs 65 pounds and is about 48" tall.
Anyway, back to the poop issue.... Any suggestions from other people? Any idea on what may be going on? She is pre-pubescent (sp?)
Thanks in advance.
