Question: My 10-year-old grandson is pooping his pants all the time. He has seen a Dr. and his docter says he is constipated and the runny poop is a bypass. So the doctor put him on a speacial diet and laxative twice daily. But this doesn't work--he still poops his pants.The doctor feels his stomach and says he has solid stools. But no tests or x-rays have been done. Can you give some advice?
