Hello and Welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service.

I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.

* As per my clinical experience, though constipation can give pain to right lower abdomen, I suspect an underlying calculus in the urinary system.

* Kindly take a CT scan of the abdomen and pelvis for the perfect diagnosis and further management guidelines. Till that time, consume plenty of liquids and high fiber diet.

Hope I have answered your query.

Let me know if I can assist you further.

Hi, my daughter is 22 years old and she is having a lot of problems with constipation she has had some signs of very little blood in her urine and stool, she has pain in her lower right side of her abdomen. About two years ago she was diagnosed with PCOS and had surgery to remove scar tissue from a possible cyst on her ovary , she has since then lost 30 pounds has been dieting and exercising and eating very healthy and has all of her hormonal issues back on track, but still having more issues, we know she has built up calcium crystals that may cause kidney Stones and have recently had a kidney ultrasound which we don t have results back yet. We are struggling trying to find answers, the nurse that did the ultrasound procedure today said that she had and excessive amount of gas build up , does any of this sound like it is pointing to something specific?

Do you have any idea what the problem could be? Thank you.
