My 2 /2 year old has hard bloody stools
tjl2013 posted:
I havea 2 1/2 year old son who has been having problems on and off for the past 7 months pooping. They doctors couldnt figure out if he was consitpated or had diahrea. They gave him supositories, enemas, miralax, milk of mag, mineral oil, prune juice, took starches and processed sugars out of his diet. and added fibers, but nothing has seemd to help. After muliple xrays ever 3 weeks or so they all showed no improvement. Well today after an agonizing half hour of screaming and crying he finally was able to push out a golf ball size very hard stool, proceeded by raisin sized stools through out the evening. My question is, Is that last few stools have had blood inside them ( I saw red on the outside so i smushed them open and it was filled with blood) so its not like it was just grazed little on the outside, and no blood on his rectum. Is this okay, any suggestions? I finally was able to get him into a specialist after a long argument with the dr but thats not until Tuesday, is it okay to wait until then? Any advice. Thanks in advance.
