I need some help..... Ds is driving me batty

Ok, so my ds has issues with pooping.. We have done reward system and all that stuff. Each time he will do it for a day or so and then go back to pooping in his pants. Each time is a little bit of poop not like a Lincoln log... Well this is the 2nd day in a row I had to pick him up from school because he pooped in his pants again. This has been an issue on and off all school year... Mainly more on than off. He does has ADHD and is currently NOT taking medication because he wasn't eating at all, and his doc pulled him off it. He is going to see a behavioral specialist on Monday... But honestly if I have to spend one more day washing underwear and making him take a shower each time he does it, I might lose my mind...
Any idea or suggestions on how I can help him? He is 5 and will be 6 in August so he is old enough to know better.
Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

good luck!  the only thing that worked with my DD (now 4) was cold shower after AND having her clean up/wash out her own underwear

We haven't used diapers or pull ups in almost a year and I am scared to go back to them. We ended up at the doc today and he seems to think ds is constipated and we are using double dose of miralax today and tomorrow... I hope it helps! Thanks everyone

This is what we did for both our sons; when they needed to go I would put them in a diaper and have them go in the bathroom with the door open. Let them do that a few times. Then shut the door, do that a few times. Then, have them stand right next to the potty. Then, sit on the potty with the lid closed, then with the lid open. Then cut a hole in the diaper and have them go on the potty with the lid open. You might have to put the holey diaper on them a few times, but who cares? When you have a kid who holds his poop till he's so constipated he CAN'T go, you're willing to do anything. My kids were younger than yours and have no ADHD or anything. Good luck! Let me know how he does.

Did you ever ask him Why he is pooping in his Britches? Can he wipe by his self? Maybe he's shy about going in public -  my dd wont poop in public bathroom an she just turned 6 ....

Mine is the same way with urine instead of poop although sometimes it does go to poop as well.  He's almost the exact same age 5 going on to 6 in June.  I wish you luck!  We us panty liners to help with the urine smell.
