DS is 2 years old and last week he had gastro (vomiting and diarrhea the next day), he was given medication to stop the nausea by the hospital.
One week later (today) he has BAD constipation. The poo is massive and stuck in his anus. It is a big poo made up of little tiny stools.
Im at work and my mum took him to a GP, they said to use some drops and go back tomorrow.
DS is in pain and struggling, should I tell my mum to get a second GP opinion or do you think the drops is the only option?

Constipation help. Quick response please.

Sounds gross but you could try putting him a warm bath and letting him pass some of it in there, the warm water seems to relax them. (As well as the GPs recommendations). There's also things like Movicol Junior from the chemist.

Give the drops a go. They might be handy to have on hand if you have this drama again.
Would a warm bath help? Even if it is just to help him relax?
Does he like pear juice? I hear that helps too.

Can't the GP do something like a depository to get it out?
My mum has a very deep bath, I am not sure if it something she would like to do. I will try tonight for sure.

Try a glycerol suppository from the chemist. Gentle but they work quickly. Poor little guy.

My chemist also suggested putting heaps of nappy cream on, it can make it a bit less painful as everything stretches to let the poo out

The GP suggested watery / soft foods for now, no solids. What do you think I should give and avoid?
You think the drops for a couple of days?
