Hello and thank you for posting your query on HCM
The chronic constipation that your daughter is facing and a raised ESR (30), I feel that you should get a coloscopy along with biopsy of the colon.
The raised ESR suggets some chronic disease process which is going on in the body.

thanks and take care
