Brief Answer:
Laxatives

Detailed Answer:
Hello,

I understand your concern. If you haven't tried laxatives I recommend you do so. Also try to drink a cup of water every hour. If you do not see any results by tomorrow morning, then you need to repeat the enema. If it still doesn't work, the impacted stool will need be be manually removed by a medical professional.

I hope this answers your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care.
