    12 year daughter keeps having stomach issues-What can it be??
    An_258359 posted:
    My daughter has had stomach issues over two years now. After she eat anything greasy such as cheese, french fries, fish cooked lightly in oil she needs to go to the toilet. At times she is sit on the toilet in alot of pain just waiting for the pain to pass or to poop. I did take her to the Dr. a year ago at which time they did take an x-ray and found my daughter to be constipated so she put her on a light dose of a laxative. But this can't be normal. The poor girl has learned to live with this and/or bathroom you runs which at times are for 30 mins. Does this sound like a gallbladder problem and if so do 12 years get their gallbladder removed? Or does this sounds like another problem?

    Has your daughter seen a gastroenterologist? While we can't give medical advice or a diagnosis here, and a medical professional is always best to consult, you may want to look at this information irritable bowel disease . The main symptoms of IBS are abdominal pain and a change in bowel habits, which can be constipation, diarrhea, or both. Also, fatty foods are one of the more common triggers of symptoms. The above link has more information on triggers and symptoms as well as some treatment options you could try if this turns out to be the cause of your daughter's pain. Please let us know how she is doing!
