Thanks for your query.Based on the facts that you have posted it appears that you have Chronic constipation with difficulty in passing urine
Your Ultrasound scanning report revealed grade 1 enlargement of prostate.

Difficulty in passing urine may be due to combined effect of grade one enlarged prostate and pressure of hard faecal matter over bladder outlet.
Take laxatives to soften the stools and consult qualified Urologist for medication to improve your urine flow,
