Blimey, how do you know it is kinked? I assume the only way is for him to have had an internal investigation or an x ray. In which case you have already been in the company of the medical specialists who should have given you some advice. What did they say?

Zacky which is seven had a colonoscopy last week. He is still not potty trained. Like I said earlier he is a special child with a chromosone disorder. We meet with his doctor today and will see a surgeon this week. I'm sure we will find out more today but I was just curious if any of you have had or heard of a kinked colon - he also mentioned the cecum. Just a typical grandmother who is trying to learn more about the colon before we see the doctor.
