Ask a Paediatrician Online and Get an Answer ASAP
Hello. This is Dr Geyik and I will be assisting you today.
Can I please ask if your son has any other medical conditions or allergies, or take medications?
Is there any bleeding from anywhere, pain anywhere at all, mucus in his stools, straining, faecal incontinence, vomiting, fever, urine issues, etc?
So has he had any accidents since he can't feel he needs to poo?
So, other than this feeling he doesn't have any other symptoms; is that correct?
It is unlikely that he has any sinister or serious underlying cause for this. However, you should see his GP for a routine assessment and physical examination.
Having large poo can be normal but not having a feeling is not that normal and this may need to be further assessed.
Wishing him all the best!
You are most welcome.
