Just have your veterinarian keep reevaluating her periodically, At this age thyroid problem, kidney and liver problems as well as pancreatitis can be factors in her intestinal problems. She also could be dealing with arthritis. However pancreatic and kidney problems can be quite uncomfortable and could be a possible factor. She needs periodic blood profiles including viral checks and thyroid levels. She may need a test called cPLI sent to the lab and definitely ultra sound by a qualified specialist or one very competent in its use is important in her workup.
good luck and hopefully the problem will be identified and taken care of.

Yes it is definitely a possibility if she is truly groaning in her sleep. If she hasn't had a check up in a while definitely go. Hope all is ok. Thank you
