6yr w Persistent Potty Issues
So we have been struggling with our 6+yr old’s potty issues for years. We have the pee issue mostly ok, but have never gotten a handle on the poop front. We have seen a long list of providers over the years including various psychologists, a gastroenterologist, a potty consultant and a biofeedback specialist. Though we have gotten a diagnosis of encopresis, no “treatment” regimen has had any helpful effect and we remain very lost on both the physiological and the psychological aspects. Now that our child is in elementary school, this issue is really having a major effect on quality of life (both our child’s and ours). Has anyone gone through this, what eventually helped, and what type of providers helped with the diagnosis or the solution?
