Hi there.
Thank you for your question.
I will be helping you out with your queries.
You may very well be having an impacted stool in your rectum which may require manual evacuation.
But first I would like that you should try stool softeners like Bisacodyl, Pedia-Lax or Dulcolax.
If that does not work the next step is an enema or suppository.
If that does not work you need to contact your doctor for this for manual evacuation.
I would like that you should be further investigated to find out exactly what's caused this to happen so that you can prevent this from happening in the future.
Let me know if you have more questions.
I would appreciate it if you rate me by clicking on one of the smilies below.
