Your little grandson is having problems with constipation and this is ongoing despite the best efforts to help him with a good diet as well as safe laxatives. It is now time to get the opinion of a paediatric gastroenterologist. There are specialists attached to all the paediatric departments of the major teaching hospitals in the main centres in SA. Your daughter cannot afford to see a specialist in private practice so she should try and get an appointment at her nearest paediatric department.
