Thanks for posting query.
It appears to be due to constipation.
Follow the advices properly-
1.     Initially you may require enema for complete evacuation of your hard fecal material for evacuation of your loaded colon.
2.     Then you can take laxatives
3.     Take more fibre containing food.
4.     Take plenty of water.
5.     Avoid fried and junk food.
6.     Do regular physical exercise
Consult with physician for further proper management.
Wish you a speedy recovery.
