I have TYPE 1 stools which block evacuation & I have to

Customer Question

I have TYPE 1 stools which block evacuation & I have to scoop these out myself. Is there any stool softener available in chemists which is effective. I drink as much water as I can, eat apples - but the problem persists. Should I try a colonoscope or a colon cleansing ? Many thanks for your advice & of course I guess I should go and see a gastro doctor ?
