Rectal prolapse

Hello!  I first noticed my now 2 year old prolapsing when he was a tiny infant while pushing on the changing table.  Didn’t notice it again until we did potty training and he keeps prolapsing after going in the potty.   I have a feeling it’s been happening this whole time, but it was resolving on its own before we changed the diapers.  Now it’s happening and not resolving on its own. We have all the docs involved, but curious if anyone else has had a similar experience and what the outcome was.  Any words of advice or encouragement are appreciated.  He’s otherwise pretty healthy so far.  Thanks.

RE: Rectal prolapse ()

I'm so sorry to hear this. I am an acupuncturist and I have not had personal experience with pediatric prolapse, but I have successfully treated adults with rectal or vaginal prolapse. If you're open to it, I would recommend seeing a pediatric acupuncturist. I've taken my daughter to Den at The Acupuncture Den in Noe Valley in SF. She's wonderful. I hope that's helpful.
