Taylor’s Journey

Taylor is a happy 7 year old. She is in first grade at her elementary school. Taylor was seen by her pediatrician due to having accidents in her clothes. They sent us to NCH to the behavior clinic which was not where we needed to be. She wasn’t doing it purposely. The Dr. at the behavior clinic got us into GI and that is where her journey began. She was diagnosed with encopresis. She was given medicine. We had a plan for a clean out. We continued going to GI until August of 2015. I heard about a program at NCH within the Center for Colorectal and Pelvic Reconstruction team. It is called The Bowel Management Program. We got into the program and stayed a week at the Ronald McDonald House. The team at the CCPR came up with plan. We went through trial and error until we found the right combination of medicine that worked for her. Everyday we had to go over to NCH to have abdominal x-rays to see if she was making progress. She did great. We still have some bowel problems occasionally but now I know exactly what to do to help her. Thank you to the behavior doctor for getting us to GI and to GI for giving us the referral to The Bowel Management Program. Thanks to the staff at RMH as well for allowing us to stay there while she went through the program. Everybody is so great there. We love the NCH staff as well. They are fantastic. She loved her radiologist. He became her buddy and he made it enjoyable for her to get her abdominal x-ray.
