My son is 11 and soiling issues have started again! when he was in 1st grade we started having the problems and began seeing a GI specialist, Miralax daily, potty sits etc. He was also wetting the bed at night. this went on until we got him cleaned out (thus yes, your child may be compacted). very frustrated that in the 6th grade my sons problems are back. we are going to a new DR next week as i dont want to go thru the miralax routine again. my sons self-esteem has totally been shot. it's very difficult!
