yeah I agree with everyone else. I have no clue who to talk to about it, but I'm sure his pedi or someone will know and can refer you to someone

He's got an appointment with his gastroenterologist on Monday. I'm sure he wont be able to tell me anything ... guess we'll be seeing the pedi too.

New question. He's got another condition called encopresis. With some of the causes / side effects with the lordosis.....could the be related?
