To empty the impacted stool the first thing that I would do here is use a suppository i.e. glycerine suppository would be the one that I would use.
It is important to evacuate the stool from the intestine as soon as possible which is the reason why I would use the suppository.
If this does not work out and he is still impacted then I would recommend that he be seen because then he would likely require an enema or manual evacuation of the stool from the rectum.
Let me know if you have more questions.
