My daughter has been experiencing infrequent bouts of constipation. Maybe once a month. She sometimes doesn't go for up to 5 days. Doesn't have any pain.
 
I'm just worried that this could be a sign of  a blockage or stricture, like she had when first diagnosed.
 
Does anyone know if this a cause for concern?  Thanks, Tom.
My daughter was diagnosed Feb. 19/07, (13 yrs. old at time of diagnosis), with Crohn's of the Terminal Illium. Initially, 9 weeks of Prednisone, currently taking 2000mgs of Pentasa.

yes that is a long time to go without pooping. I would get that looked into should could get so blocked up she could perforate the bowel. Can she pass gas at least?

Although constipation can be associated with CD, after not going that long I would definitely get her to the doc, as sugarmarie says, it could be a blockage or something going on too.
