The Poo Doctor
After waiting almost six months to see him, we've finally had our appointment with the Paed at the RCH (or The Poo Doctor as Gigi so affectionately calls him). I really love this Paed. He's the same one we where seeing for Gigi's fontenelle issues. He was great then, and was great again now.
For anyone not in the know, Gigi has been suffering from chronic constipation her whole life. Constipation to the point that she'll projectile vomit because she is that backed up that nothing will go down. We've managed so far with stool softeners and enemas without too many of the vomiting bouts, but now that she's toilet training it's time to pull out the big guns.
So now she's on a 3 month plan. The Paed is happy with her diet so the two main things that we'll be changing are moving to soya milk and upping her medication. This is to keep her bowels empty so that they can shrink back to normal size (which can take anywhere from 3 to 6 months). Once the 3 months is up, we'll revisit with him to see where we go to from here.
