Hello. Thanks for writing in. My name is***** and I would be happy to help you. I do have a couple more questions, though, to see if I can better assess your situation.Is there any blood or mucus in his stool?Any vomiting?Is he having multiple attempts to defecate with very little to no feces coming out or seems like he cannot hold it?
