We went to the doctor only done scan ;ultrasound rtf everything came back normal except that they said his colon is too long. Have you ever head about extra long colon.

Re: Abdominal pain and back pain

I have heard of an extra long colon and surgical repair for it.

Did your doctor also look closely at his gallbladder? Gallbladder often has back pain when it is not functioning properly.
