In brief: Need more info

It seems to be chronic constipation, but really need more info to be able to help you with this and these forums are very limited.
If your colonoscopy, pelvic exam and blood tests are negative, that is a good start. There are a few other imaging modalities, but the decision of which one really depends on knowing the whole story. Definitely continue speaking with your doc.
