Hello and welcome to HCM.

Thank you for your query.

We are still unsure about the diagnosis, so we cannot advise much without knowing the condition and understanding the cause, but in the meantime you could consult your doctor and request stool softeners or pain management medication.

Please have a lot of fluids and avoid a rich fiber diet.

I hope I have succeeded in providing the information you were looking for. Please feel free to write back to me for any further clarifications. I would gladly help you.

Best wishes.
