My 2-year-old daughter has had large, extremely hard bowel movements for about 11 months. Her GP told me to put her on mineral oil for 6 months, but the problem didn't clear up. I went to another doctor, who told me that she would have to be on it for 9 months before it cleared up. She will have been on the mineral oil for one year in August, and is still having the same problem. Her GP thinks I am a nutcase, but the stools nearly always have blood on the outside, and she strains so much I am worried about her. Am I just paranoid, or is something else wrong?
