The years of laxatives may well have reduced the motility of your colon. The 'droop' is less important than the actual function because waste passes along using muscular movement of the intestine.
Do make sure your diet is rich in fiber and that you drink plenty of fluids. But I would not worry about an anatomical feature. Many people do not have a 'straight' transverse colon on x-ray.
