In brief: Swollen large bowel

The largebowel stops working and waste piles up finally blocking the exit so it baloons up.

In brief: Seek specialty help

This is a descriptive label rather than a condition like appendicitis.
Most kids get it through chronic stool retention, which enlarges the large intestine & decreases the strength of emptying.They often have cycles of constipation & sometimes soiling.You need to find a Pedi GI or Developmental pediatrician to help you .A year long program is common. The colon can often return to normal.
