Hi Jeni, I would first ask your grandma when was the last time she moved her bowels and was it a normal bowel movement for her? The second thing I would ask is if she had any burning, urgency or frequency when she urinates? I would definitly take her to her physician because it could be so many different things.
Good luck.
