Get evaluated: Fecal impaction is a condition that requires investigation and treatment. You should see a gastroenterologist for an evaluation, and if no obvious cause is discovered to explain it, then empiric treatment with daily Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is certainly one possible long-term treatment.
