What course of treatment should be done for abdominal pain and constipation?

Hi I am having abdominal pain from my right side around to my back. this has been going on for about five days. I thought it might be constipation because I hadnt gone in several days. So I bought some Dulcolax I have been going some. I also thought it might be a kidney infection( I have a hiistory of them) So I started drinking a lot of cranberry juice. It seemed to be getting better, but know its back again. any ideas.

Hello,

As per my surgical experience, the pain is related to possible gravels or calculation in the kidney or ureter; constipation may be in relation with intestine motility-related or else.

Though there is relief with plenty of liquids, it has turned back, which narrate the need for an ultrasound of the abdomen & pelvis to find out the cause and treat in accordance with that only.

Primary relief with cranberry sachet or pills and analgesic as dicyclomine or diclofenac if no history of drug sensitivity.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr. Bhagyesh V. Patel, General Surgeon
