Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - September 23, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta Monday, 23, 1974 THE LETHBRIDGE HERALD 11 Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I read about the little girl who refus- ed to have a bowel movement My little grandson had the same problem He would he belly down on the floor with both hands pressing the groin to prevent having a bowel movement or to pass urine We went through all the begging, teas- ing and coaxing routine When he was 4Vz he complained of abdominal pains Well at last the doctors found out he had a very small opening of the urinary tract He had had it since infancy He wasn't able to urinate properly Instead he held it The bladder began to ex- pand, and it was so large it caused him trouble in moving his bowels He also had bladder infections because of all the urine he retained The little opening was simp- ly enlarged, and my grand- son's problems began to be solved Whenever I see a potbellied tot now I wonder if he's having bowel or bladder trouble Perhaps if you wrote a column on the importance of a normal opening at the tip of the penis it would help save a lot of parents from a similar problem Incidentally my grandson is fine now and has no problem at all, thanks to a simple operation Inciden- tally, could this have been caused by his circumcision9 Dear Reader Thank you for a kind and thoughtful letter There are many reasons for bowel problems and failure to eliminate urine The first step in finding out the cause is a good ex- amination Sometimes a serious problem has a simple solution, as you have ex- plained It is possible to have a stric- ture of the outlet of the penis from a reaction to circum- cision, but a very small open- ing can be something that a child is born with Its only real importance is the obstruction to normal urination Any obstruction that does this will often cause bladder distention and infections in either young and old In many ways your little grandson had the same problem men have with obstruction from a large prostate gland The only difference being the obstruc- tion to outflow was at the tip of the penis and not inside at the outlet of the bladder For- tunately the problem was more easily solved Send your questions to Dr. Lamb, in care of this newspaper, P.O. Box 1551, Radio City Station, New York, N.Y. 10019. For a copy of Dr. Lamb's booklet on blood sugar, send 50 cents to the same address and ask for the "Blood Sugar" booklet.
