Iki gets constipated for months now. At first he passes his bowel movement (BM) once every two days, and then became once in every three days, once every four days, and recently every five days. He holds it because he is afraid of the pain he always gets during passing it out. It makes situation worse for the stool is getting harder. I can't remember when was the last time Iki passing his BM without crying......
I've tried everything I think is possible to help him. I give him good amount of veggies and fruits (this helps my BM but not his BM!), I give him yakult, I give him fiber rich snacks, I massage his stomach, I give some oil and massage his anus (and now he's "enjoying" it!!), I reduce his milk and give some soya milk instead (though he hates it), and even gave him 2 teaspoons of black coffee suggested by Yun (I thought he wouldn't drink it but he liked it).
Didn't work. He still passes his BM every five days, still in pain.
I brought him to doctor last week and got laxatives to soften his stool. It didn't work. This makes him really uncomfortable and becomes a very irritating boy. He's frustrated, and so I am!
Tonight at last he could sleep at 11 p.m with uncomfortably bloating stomach. I feel so useless that i couldn't help him (_ _o), and feel so tired of controlling my patience (@_@).
Tomorrow I'll bring him to doctor again, asking for stronger medicine. Looking at the amount of food he eats everyday, I'm now worrying the amount of "trash" inside his colon. Won't it lead to bigger problem, like bacteria or any colon infection?!
Any idea or suggestion?! I am so desperate looking at him suffering........
