I just joined this forum hoping to get answers or suggestions regarding my now, horrible constipation. I had a colonoscopy 13 days ago and since then I haven't had a BM. i don't feel any discomfort or pain. I take Miralax on daily basis (I have for many years) so I think the stuff is not hard, but I just don't feel like going at all. I used a suppository and I had a little BM, very liquid, and just a little (whatever was close to the suppository.) I'm very worried that my colon shut down, I don't feel any movement. Miralax hasn't been working well for months, I was having BM maybe once a week. Because of that, my GI suggested a colonoscopy. The results came out ok, he just said that my colon is extra long and twisted. He also thinks my body got used to Miralax so he suggested another laxative. I don't want to continue taking laxatives because I know that is what cause my colon to become lazy. Please help!!! What should I do?

I would keep pestering your doctors as there has got to be a cause. I'm not an expert in constipation, so I cannot say. Sounds like you have motility (that is muscle movement) issue with your bowels if they are not able to pass stool along. Whether that is from an IBS, or another problem I cannot say. Keep pushing and pestering your doctors for tests. It has a cause and it must be determined.
