Brief Answer:
Colitis is possible

Detailed Answer:

It seems like your wife has a colon infection or Colitis.

Please get a simple stool routine test done to rule out the infection in her intestines. Based on the stool test report, we can treat her accordingly.

Please get this done and revert to me for further guidance on the same.

In the meantime, ask your wife to withhold eating pulses, legumes, foods that cause gas formation a lot like dal, sprouts.
