Press on his abdomen. Does he feel like he is full of poop?

What kind of Laxatives did you give him? My DD can drink a whole bottle of Miralax, and will not go. We have to give her enemas.

Appendicitis is on the right.

Take him to the E.R IMMEDIATELY. I don't know ANY child that screams in pain due to constipation!!

Try the Pediatric Enemas they sell at Walmart. If that doesn't work, take him to the ER. Is it in the front or back. If it's in his back it could be a kidney issue

Is it front or back? If it is back ( flank ) pain it could be his kidney. DS gets constant kidney infections and if we tap gently on his back he cries and thats how we know.
