Thank you for visiting health24.com.
It is very important that you make an appointment for your mother at a general surgeon, as she will have to undergo a gastroscopy and have an upper abdominal ultrasound done. There are many organs on the right side of the abdomen which need to be examined carefully, in order to make a proper diagnosis.
For the constipation, she can use Laxette syrup, twice daily, in combination with Movicol, twice daily.
