Abdominal discomfort and swelling, dark stools. History of hemorrhoid and constipation. Any ideas?

Hi, I have lower right side abdominal discomfort and swelling . Saw my GP last Wednesday and he said my cecum was blocked, prescribed fybogel and said come back in a month. The swelling has been there for at least a month visibly but I ve felt discomfort here for a long while (years). It makes me feel I need to urinate frequently and sometimes, usually when I m near my monthly I can leak a little urine. I m hypothyroid , diagnosed two years ago and on 125mcg thyroxine . I have had problems over last four years with haemorrhoids and constipation . When I saw my GP last week I d had a little bleeding and some mucussy pus when trying to go. I was feeling generally unwell and a little nauseuos and had been that way for over a week. I am managing to pass stools, they are quite dark and pellet like, I still feel unwell and am getting more and more worried about the swelling. I don t feel I can wait a month, any ideas? Thanks

Thank for asking to HCM
I really appreciate your concern and looking to the history given here I could say that because of the persistence constipation this is likely to happens and in my opinion right now this can be managed with general management like drinking more water, have fibber containing diet, keep the regular habit of going to toilet even there is no need or feeling like that, low down your stress level, take care and have a nice day.
