Constipated 4yr old?

My daughter hasn't pooped in 5 days. She also hasn't wanted to eat for two days. Which is not like her! I even tried McDonald's with no luck! She is drinking water and apple juice. Normally she cannot have apple juice because it gives her diarrhea. She had her tonsils and adenoids removed about 3 1/2 weeks ago. She resumed her normal eating habits over a week ago, up until two days ago. Could this be related? She is getting black circles under her eyes and I'm gettin a bit worried. She usually has a normal bowl every day. She is not complaining of any stomach pain and is urinating normally.

She probably isn't eating because of the constipation. My kids get miserable if they haven't gone for 3 days. I would call her pediatrician, and have her seen as soon as possible. If she is still on any meds from the surgery, they could be causing the constipation.
