Re: Chronic constipation. Backed up stool!

Hi. I had chronic constipation all my life, painful bm's, etc. After having my first colonoscopy at age 43 (my grandmother died of colon cancer so I got screened a little early) my doctor told me that my intestines were tortioned, twisted, which is why I was constipated. He prescribed something called Miralax powder which I have taken now every morning for the past 6 years. So I would go ahead with the colonoscopy and see what they say. Good luck.
