Had a hemorrhoidectomy then a repair for anal stenosis. Dependent on miralax (polyethylene glycol) . I will have to take rest of my life. Is this safe?

In brief: Yes

Miralax (polyethylene glycol) is a large inactive molecule that holds water in the stool, helping to keep the stool soft.
It has proven safe over the long term, allowing the fda to convert it to an over the counter medication.
