Some advice please!

I went to the doctor's a few days ago with lower abdominal pain. My stools are soft and narrow, probably about the size of my thumb if not more. I was looking online and found that soft stool usually is thin because it gets "squished" in the colon. I have been on colace 2 times a day and miralax 17 grams once a day. Today is my 3rd dose of miralax. I am a hypochondriac so the first thing that comes to mind is the big C word... Anyone else have any of the same problems? I also forgot to mention I do have a few cysts and doctors think my pain might be coming from that. I am rescheduled for a check up in 2 weeks and if I'm not having regular BM's then they are thinking about doing a colonoscopy. Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Dear TommieB,
A colonoscopy will help answer a lot of your questions...
