:I also have a daughter with chronic constipation, although she dosent soil her pants. It has become quite a problem, she has just spent 5 days in hospital with horrific pains in the gut, and after undergoing many degrading test all they can put it down to is bowel compaction. She has had a life time history of constipation, and eats accordingly, it has got to the stage it is ruling her entire life, to scared to have a social life and many missed days at work (she is 20 years old) there is no warning when the pain ihiots and it is regular evem if she has a bowel motion, it never seems to correct it! lease does anyone else suffer this way?
