Maddie's Full Of Poop...

Please forgive my lack of tack in choosing a title, but I just had to do it!  There is just no better way to say it.  It's what my daughter said to me when she called me with the results of Madison's doctor's visit...and I laughed!

Madison went to the urologist this week for a consultation concerning the problems she's been having.  After checking her out and doing some tests, it's the doctor's opinion that Maddie is "full of poop"!  The doctor showed her parents the x-rays to prove it!

The doctor went on to say that constipation is prevalent in little girls, and he sees many new patients each week experiencing the same problem (urine leakage) as Madison.  Although Madison poops regularly, apparently she needs to poop a lot more...  The key is to get Madison totally "cleaned out" and keep her that way.  Not an easy task!

Yesterday, Brandy did both of the doctor's recommended procedures--with no results!  This child must be backed up and plugged with a cork!  We'll just have to wait and see what today brings...if anything!

I'm relieved to know that Maddie's problem isn't more serious.  I just hope she gets "things moving" soon--and that her problems will be be resolved as a result!

Castor oil, anyone?  Maybe our parents knew something that we don't...

Poor thing... I know how Maddie feels.I was full of poop too a few weeks ago which showed up on a x ray..After getting unplugged, I take a stool softener and fiber everyday.My mom gave us kids castor oil and we were fine..I could not tolerate that today..hope she feels better soon.. hugs, Baba

Hope she gets back to normal soon. There are so many foods and snacks that contain fiber, maybe Brandy can find one that she likes...or like Baba said...a stool softener. They are so small, she shouldn't have too much trouble taking those. Whatever it takes, I hope things get better and she can start going more often. She'll be in my prayers.
