Hi everyone, For anyone that remembers me my 13 yr old is diagnosed with Post Viral Illness along with intractable constipation. Basically since he became ill 15 months ago he has been unable to defecate by himself and needs daily enemas and/or Peristeen to be able to poo. As you can imagine this has had a dreadful impact on his young life and he is in constant pain with it. Anyway, my reason for this thread is to ask your advice on motility/transit issues through the digestive system. His doctors here in Ireland haven't done any test of this nature but I carried out my own 'home' test using corn. It took 224 hours for the corn to eventually reappear which seems to be an extraordinarily long time to me. I am currently in the process of trying to find an expert in the UK, Europe or, last resort, USA who might be able to help him but I will put a separate post in the relevant forum. In the meantime I just wanted your opinion on this transit time. Do you think it is of any significance or is it something one would expect given the state his poor digestive system must be in after 15 months of this?
