He's been leaking poop for the past 18 hours. We've gone through 7 pairs of underwear. He's got diarrhea really bad. But he never feels it coming, no pain, no gas, no urgent feeling. All of a sudden he's playing and he comes to me saying his pants are dirty. Some is just spotting. Last night he twice blasted his pants it got on his bed sheets.
Why? Why can't he feel this? Is there something amiss with his butt?
Update: DS had a full day's activities, and full meals. Seems to be doing okay. Did have another bought of diarrhea late this afternoon, but he was on the toilet for it to occur. It has been about 7 hours without anything loose coming.
I did figure something out, though. When he poops regularily (normal, formed stools), his body voids quickly - no waiting around. He sits down, goes, and could be done in like a minute. I realized today that he was taking that same approach to this loose stool and wasn't waiting long enough for his body to send out all the diarrhea that was ready to come (hence, the leaking, I think). I began to coach him on sitting longer and waiting for it to make its way out. He began to listen and I think he realized how he has to sit a bit longer to wait for this kind of poop to come. The being more patient with his body approach.
I think we are going to be okay. But I will contine to watch him.
