I understand your concern. She probably has a motility problem called Irritable Bowel Syndrome in which the bowels are very irregular and have irregular consistency. She may have to run to the toilet after a meal which is a post prandial hurry. This is a very distressing problem but not a serious illness. However if she has lost weight or at any time noticed blood in the motion she should have an examination of her colon. You should consult a gastroenterologist in such a situation.
Stress ( tension) and certain types of food which are spicy or greasy make matters worse.
Hysterectomy and gall bladder surgery can produce symptoms from adhesions but are less likely.
I shall be happy to answer if you have further queries.
Beat wishes,
