Worried that bowels get constricted if 3 yr old “goes” only every 4-5 days, and that with mirolax, fibrous foods and still with difficulty. His dad had a olectomy due to Chrohn’s at age 14, could this be genetic?

I’m si sorry, I must have goofed, never used Facebook and couldn’t access the video via mayo Connect, still trying since 10:00, posted two questions so far but not sure if I used the right “channels”!?!  I was so looking forward to having an opportunity to make some headway with this problem but I simply goofed snd apparently am not able to “connect”!  Elisabeth 

Hi @elisabetha,

The video begins at 10am Central Time, so in another half an hour. You don’t need a Facebook account as you can participate right here on Connect. Simply return to this page and the video will be shown at the top of the page. You can post your question here before or during the presentation.

Question: How severe should symptoms be in a child, before needing to pursue a medical evaluation AND if there is with one confirmed parent who has Crohns Disease? Is it better to wait until symptoms become severe? Or would milder but recurring symptoms warrant a need for evaluation? By milder symptoms I mean every 2-3 months an episode of diarrhea, cramping, stomach pain and sometimes vomiting. With that said, also what exactly are the lines between mild and more severe symptoms in a child with IBD? Also, does Mayo Clinic provide evaluations for kids (who live out of state) and on a self referral, who might want a medical evaluation for possible IBD?

So sorry i  couldn’t  connect, think it was the storm and i lost wifi but it could also be that I was technically challenged!   Not wanting to take too much of your time,  do you think Dr.. Mattke and/or Dr. Tung  could recommend a Pediatric Gastroenterologist in the D.C. metropolitan area, including in Arlington, VA?  I know Mayo Clinic is part of Virginia  Hospital Center in Arlington, VA.  Just as a reminder: it concerns my 3-year old grandson.  Thank you very much for all your help.
