Dear *****ient, because of the characteristics of the pain, symptoms and its location it is impressive that this is an inflammatory colitis in specific of the ascendant color.
The body has been subjected to stress, generate release of stress hormones such as cortisol, this hormone acts on the digestive tract delaying its absorption and altering their intestinal motility, this generates gas and distension that generate pain in the area.
Because of her history of bladder infection, even her urinary tract must be sensitive since she was recently outgrown.
All of these structures are located close together and can generate similar symptoms.
In your case I suggest Performing an abdominal echo to confirm the diagnotic, and once confirmed start with pancreatic enzymes to help the digestion of food, improve constipation and eliminate pain.
For the moment I suggest taking ibuprofen 200mg every 8 hours.
Drink plenty of fluids and try to eat foods high in fiber
