Hey I'm a GI doctor. You may need to be manually disimpacted. You can go to a doctor's office/urgent care for help or you could try it yourself. You need a glove and some lube. You just try and dig out the hard stool that plugs up your rear end. I have scooped several cupfuls of hard stool out before it gets soft enough that a patient can push it out on their own. PM me if questions.

Well my work is done here. Back to the bowels of the hospital...

If you could draw me disimpacting someone it would make my year.

It would have been an EKG (also called ECG). An EEG is to look at brainwaves.

I'm glad it came out ok (pun intended). You may want to look for a new primary though. If you go more than three or four days without a bm you may want to take some citrate of magnesia or a bunch of miralax. Don't let it get too bad, otherwise you could end up plugged up again.
