Concerned about my grandson...
crisdavis posted:
My 4 yr. old grandson was born without an anus. They operated on him when he was 2 days old, and we were told there would not be any problems for him. since then, every bowel movement is an issue. The feces are HUGE, and he cannot pass them without 'help'. I'm concerned because he will be starting school next year. My daughter tells me that his doctor says this is just because bowel movements make him 'uncomfortable', so he makes himself constipated. Where can we look for help?

Hi crisdavis that is a unusual story, never heard that one before sorry to hear of the situation hope it does not become a risk factor when he is older, it sounds like when it happens he is in pain......hope it works out fine
Roy Benaroch, MD responded:
I recommend the family consult with a pediatric gastroenterologist. After his surgery, there may have been a period of time where stools required some manual help, but that really should be an issue now-- still, it may be a difficult habit to break. The family will need guidance here.

Best of luck!
