Duncan has an appointment with his specialist/surgeon on Wednesday next week. I'm going to discuss the possibility of Duncan having a cecostomy put in to help eradicate, or at least minimize, his incontenance. I'm not looking forward to this appointment at all, Duncan is terrified of this man as he has to have an internal (anal exam) every time we are there Its a very painful experience for him. I won't be telling him about this appointment until we leave the house that afternoon. No point in traumatizing the poor child until the last possible moment.
Poor kid Ani had to have a digital rectal exam once when she was 2 (that's how the ped surgeon diagnosed her anterior ectopic anus that was causing her rectal prolapse). It was horrible for her. I can only imagine how traumatized Duncan must be from having to have repeated ones. I'll keep him in my prayers that the appointment won't be terrible for him.

Thanks Heather. I'm getting more and more nervous the closer Wednesday comes I still haven't said anything to him. His father has even said he wants to go with us to the appointment, the first time in 6.5 years I was shocked, but I'm pleased he is starting to show more interest in Duncan's care
He is awake the entire time He might have to go into surgery if the doctor decides he needs the cecostomy, but at least that will give him a little more quality of life. I told him last night that he is going to to the specialist and he freaked out, he is terrified of the doctor and says the rectal examination is painful (the doctor pushes his finger up his butt ). I'm so not looking forward to that. He is lying in bed with Katie and Corbin watching Bee Movie right now, I'm not even going to attempt school today
