Hi,Ved prakashji,
Thanks for query,
it seems that you have got absolute constipation and due to age peristalsis movemen become sluggish and due to laxity of muscles constipation is common problem.
if hard fecolyths are there go for enema.
take laxative daily at night.
Do not try by finger.
Take plenty of water, green veges and salads.
ok and bye.

Hi welcome to HealthcareMagic

you are suffering from constipation, you need to take more amount of fiber foods, bulk forming foods which will make the stools soft... take banana, all kinds of vegetables, avoid excess of protein food like meat i.e chicken, mutton, fish also rice, ragi ball, which increases the effect of constipation.... also take more amount of water and fluids, tab. Dulcolax 2 tab stat.. this is used in case of constipation..

Take care...
