Intestinal varicose veins

After many tests to discover unexplained pain in her right side, my daughter finally underwent a laproscopy.  It shows varicose veins twined around part of her intestines. They look like black tree roots encircling the intestine. The surgeon stated that she had never encountered this condition.  She is waiting for a visit to another specialist, but we would be interested in any info we can glean before this.
