Dear Ms Suruchi
Thanks for your query
DId you child have the problem even in the first month of pregnancy
? that is important to know. If indeed he has had constipation
from that age, he needs an Barium Enema
study. This is done to make sure that the intestinal nerve
supply and mechanisms are in good shape. This is a simple test and does not need admission. If the barium enema report is normal, then other measures may be put in place. It is not good to be on long treatment with cremaffin
as he will need higher and higher doses as his body gets used to it..
