Customer Question
My daughter is 4...

My daughter is 4 years old. 10 days ago she became terribly constipated and after 3 trips to Kaiser, she finally went poopie. And she is going regularly since. But, she has a pain in her left side that just won't go away. What is going on??

Doctor's Assistant: How long have you had the pain? What seems to make the pain better or worse?

The pain started 10 days ago, when she was first constipated and it seems to be very consistent, not up and down.

I am sorry your daughter is so constipated.

it sounds like she could still have large hard stool in her left colon

she may need to continue to use stool softeners and laxatives to help decrease pain

she can eat prunes and she may have to use some miralax or ducolax to help her go

she has to drink a lot of water to help as well

Suggested diagnosis was what I hoped and will take this info to my doctor's appointment next week.
I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
