Hi. There is a possibility of an obstructing cause. The foremost thing is to rule out the cause for which you have to go for contrast enema studies with a water soluble dye. After the bowel could be cleansed well - an endoscopy to determine the cause. I would advise you to visit a gastro-enterologist for a clinical examination and to undergo the tests.
