Hello, prasenjit.das087,
The way you have to do is to re-train your body and senses
to relax your sphincter muscles that control defication.
You have to sit on the toilet even though you don't have the
Urge to go. Take a good book to rewd or listen to some
relaxing music.
Start eating more fruits and vegetables and increase your
fluid intake.
You can also start taking a stool softener daily.
Other thing you can do is to use polyethylene glycol (PEG)
solution, available over the counter 2-4 tablespoons daily
till you start having watery stools and then decrease
Hope this will be helpful to you.
wish you well.
