Eighteen month old having trouble with bowel movements
Patient : My son is 18 months old. He has trouble with bowel movements. He tries to go after every meal, sometimes "pushing" so hard he sweats until his hair is wet. He will also go from one extreme to the other. He will have couple days of loose stools and then a 1-2 days of harder stools, sometimes blood streaked. Is this normal?
