Colonoscopy: It sounds like you are already prepped as lactulose is a potent osmotic laxative and based on stool characteristics.Cannot comment on the possibility of a partial obstruction or structure with limited information. Would suggest calling the office of the doc performing procedure asking for further directions as they likely have access to your detailed medical history.
