Welcome to HealingWell, braille.
You should have a bm by two days after your c-scope, if you're eating normally. Has constipation always been your pattern? I wonder if you're getting enough fluids and fiber. Sometimes taking some Fibercon, Metamucil wafers or the like and drinking lots of fluids will help.
You also may want to talk to your GI about
an antispasmodic, as the pain and constipation suggest your colon has tightened up and won't let anything pass. Quite a few of UC-ers have IBS also, and that could be true in your case.
Even if the Miralax works, consider calling your GI. Managing constipation with laxatives isn't ideal, and can make it much worse.
