I can't remember if I mentioned she went back to the ER again yesterday as it happened again.
She's terrified to go potty. Not so much because she is in pain (doesn't appear to have pain) but because Wednesday and Thursday, when she pooped, we suddenly rushed her off to the hospital as she prolapsed.
She was in pain this morning from holding it in but too scared to go. She finally decided she would try to go in a diaper. No prolapse this time!! So thankful. Got it to the hospital lab and rushed to make the appointment in time (different directions and I live rurally).
At this point, nothing we can do until the lab results come in. We are seeing the specialist on Thursday at 1pm. It was the soonest we could get in. But this specialist talked with the ER doctor over the phone yesterday and said is sounds more like a mucusal prolapse (aka partial rectal prolapse or false prolapse). It is semi-common in other parts of the world, especially in kids 2-4yrs. Usually after constipation or diarrhea. She had had an intestinal bug a few weeks ago so it may have weakened the muscles then.
It could take a month for it to fully resolve itself. As long as when it happens, it goes back in within an hour, there isn't much to be concerned about. And since her's is usually back in in 20 minutes, there's really nothing to be done. The appt with the specialist is more a consultation/baseline visit so that if it doesn't resolve itself or if the lab results do have something odd in them, we are already in the system there.
I'm still scared. But I'm calmer. It helps that she didn't have another one today (yet). She will probably regress back to diapers for awhile and that's okay. I mean, it's frustrating as she was finally trained, but understandable.
