Hi Dr. Bob,
My six year old son was recently living with his grandparents and I am afraid that he has been anally raped from his mentally challenged uncle. His bowel movements have been huge and he does not even strain from them. How do I find out for sure if he will not tell me the truth?
Response from Dr. Frascino
You think your six-year-old son was anally raped by a mentally challenged uncle because his bowel movements are huge and he doesn't even strain when having them??? WOWZA! If you're concerned your son has been sexually molested, you should take him to his pediatrician for an evaluation. However, I must tell you that if your only reason for thinking your son has been sexually victimized by Uncle Nutso is that his poop is supersized, I think the pediatrician will conclude that the only thing wrong is your overactive imagination.
