    My son is 3 months away from 9 years old and he has had a prolem with constipation and soiling since he was 3 years old. We have also been given the advice of Movicol and high fibre diet. Sometimes the Movicol works for short periods but if I up the dose he has stomach cramps and nausea and very loose stools. He has a loss of appetite and I struggle to get him to eat at all. I just dont know how to get more fibre into him if he wont eat. I also think he is very underweight because of this. He soils several times a day and is very embarrased. I;m at my wits end and could cry for him. I worry about him constantly. I just dont know what to do anymore. The doctor just gives ther same advice of high fibre foods, water and movicol. I really need help
