Hi--how long ago did you take the macragol?
And have you ever had a colonoscopy?
I took it for about ten days.
no I have not had a colonoscopy
First off you need a colonoscopy if for nothing more than screening for colon cancer and polyps but now that you've had a change in bowel movements it's even more needed.
That said, you may have irritable bowel syndrome that leans more on the constipation side than the diarrhea side.
I think the macragol, taken for ten days, should have cleared your colon of almost all of the backed-up stool you had and for the time being the change in your Bristol score is likely just a consequence of that clean out. And the Bristol scale is very good as a measure of changes in bowel movements
