Hi, I'm 16 years old and I have some questions about problems I've been having. Ok. Starting from the top I have the following symptoms

*Periods of bloating
*Periods of gas
*Flat stools..not super thin just flat and thick..kind of weird actually.
No visible blood in the stools.
I have no problems passing the stool. usually 2 or 3 pieces of the thick flat stool will come out. about 2-3 inches long a piece

It started about 3 weeks ago one morning when I woke up and had some abdominal pain and I was constipated. I thought nothing of it. Well, a day went by and I started taking laxatives. My bowels were in reality empty but I didnt realize it and I took laxatives over a period of a week. I went to the doctor and he concluded I had Fecal Impaction...But 2 days later I went to the emergency room, had a rectal exam and an X-Ray and a blood test (which came back all normal) The X-ray showed empty intestines. Now here I am about 3 weeks later. I have been expiriencing thick but flat stools, sometimes small pieces sometimes larger pieces. Now being 16 years old I am really hoping I dont have colon cancer. Today I expirienced the flat stools and a gassy-bloating feeling down below my belly area. The rectal exam also came back normal. Any ideas what's going on here?
