In brief: Splenic flexure

It could be something called "splenic flexure syndrome.
" the colon, or large bowel, takes a big turn in the left upper abdomen. Sometimes that turn is hard for the food or waste products to negotiate easily. That turn, instead of being a 90-degree angle in some people can instead become a hair-pin 180-degree angle. Therefore the waste products must turn almost in the opposite direction.
