Rate this topic

Recommended Posts

Ok my 4 yr old had his colonoscopy on Thursday and eventhough he did a clean out and was full of poop. GI cleared his colon and now he still hasn't had a bowel movement two days later and he is also on Miralax too. Is this normal?

Is he bloated...or complaining of pain??????

No complaining of pain but then again he has a high tollerence to his tummy pain. And yes there is some bloating as usual.

I don't think I would worry a whole lot unless another day or two went by. I know when I have a colonoscopy, it takes me about three days to have a BM. I think totally cleaning the bowels out, it will take a few days for everything to get moving through again. If too worried, I would just contact your doctor and ask for their opinion. If nothing was found in the colonoscopy, it should get back to normal in a few days. Good luck.

I would call his Ped and update them. But keep an eye on him, decrease in appetite,unuasal bloating and increased pain are all reason to get him checked...incase of blockage ect.
