I very rarely take Miralax for my chronic constipation. I have had to resort of enemas. Miralax causes more cramping and doesn't make it move out of me - it just turns it a different consistency.
I've had 2 colonocopies - you can see my "list" below. My first was after I had terminal illeitis. My second showed nothing.
Dealing with friends and family is tough. Even though I'm 25 my father keeps offering to call the hospital to get more answers since he can "be stern." I think he realizes calling himself isn't going to get anywhere. A lot of my tests come back normal - though some don't. My family struggles more with not having a "causes" to my problem.
Sorry you have to deal with it at 17.
