Hello, I have always had problems with constipation since early childhood, now my 4 year old and 4 month old are both have great difficutly with this problem. The oldest has been on mineral oil for 2 years and is going for the scope next month, the younger has been taking a laxitive for 2 months now. The GI wants to do the scope to see why the constipation still continues even after a menu and diet change and pushing liquids. I was just wondering if something could be heridtary and mabye I passed something down? Ever heard of this anyone? My mom also has problems.
