Encoporesis makes me feel like a bad mom!

My son has encopresis and is on laxatives and fiber to regulate his bowel movements. Even with the treatment he is soiling his pants multiple times a day. He won't tell anyone when he does this, but you can smell him. I give him multiple showers a day and he still seems to always be dirty or smelly. I feel bad for him going to school because he will sit in it until he gets home. Nothing I do seems to help him and I'm beyond frustrated! I spend so much on laxatives and fiber and underwear for him and being a single mom it's becoming financial overwhelming as well as emotional. I praise him when he does go and try to get him to eat natural fibers but he is such a picky eater. I'm so ready to go by a pack of enemas and clean him out my way. Any moms have any experience with this that can offer advice? I don't want him to be the smelly kid in class...

No he can't feel when he needs to go, and his BM is soft and pasty, it makes such a mess all over him. He is embarrassed by it and we are trying set toilet times to help possibly retrain him.
