    Thanks for the quick response. The Miralax really helped him go, and I do believe (hope) that was the issue. He didn't complain of pain today. The doctor mentioned receiving iron through IV doesn't cause constipation the reason why she prefers this method. Thanks again!

    The infusion went well yesterday, but my son has been complaining of stomach pains today. I'm not sure if I mentioned he also had an iron infusion. I read that iron can make you be constipated and to give Miralax if needed. With that being said he normally goes everyday and hasn't went. I'm...

    I'm just now seeing your comment. I'm sorry for the late response. My son never had an issue with constipation. He didn't go because of the pain from his fissures. I did use suppositories but my son hated them so much. He always said they hurt, and I would do it while he was sleeping. The...

    Hello ladies. I hope each of you and your children are doing well this week. We received word today that my son does have Crohn's. We are hoping to start on Remicade within the next two weeks. I'm being told it normally takes this long for the insurance to approve the medication. We did see...

    Thank you so much for your feedback. I'm very sorry to hear about your daughter. She sounds like an amazing girl. I also appreciate her thinking about my son. Yes, I pray once we have a plan through the psychologist and start on medication things will improve.
