Constipation -- Chronic - my daughter, age 7 has had cc for three years now and just finished a sitz marker test that showed her bowels are moving slowly so they are going to admit her in a couple of weeks and put a tube in her nose with medication in it to completely clean out her bowels and then do anorectal and colonic manometry... anyone have this done?? Why don't they sedate a 7 year old for this?? VERY NERVOUS MOM!!!
i dont know if she has had this done yet. I have had this done and it is not the most comfortable but it is not painful either. Also they measure the pressure you feel to see if she has lost some sensation so they have to ask her different things throughout having it done. They want to know at what point during the test she has the sensation of going to the bathroom. Also sense sedatives cause the bowels to slow down the test will not be as accurate. I am a mom so i know how scary it is to have anything done to your child and you want them to be completely comfortable as possible. Good luck and I am sure she will do great!
