Brief Answer:
F.B. In anus / Under treatment evaluation

Detailed Answer:
Read and reviewed the facts of your query and understood your health concerns.

With very least information, I would suggest to update more info / or go to ER nearby, if its agonising and unbearable.
Best option would be -
To Consult your family doctor and get physically examined / attended.
Get X-ray / USG of the rectum and if need be CT Scan to assess the extent of damage by 10 inch rod.

Besides this- My opinion is- that 10 inch rod stuck in anus, would cause great damage or least damage- depending on how the event occurred and what are the physical forces which caused it?
If any bleeding is there ? is it bearable or is it with excruciating pain.
This and so many other things need to be ruled out and examined.

Hope this would help you to plan further emergency care with your doctors there.
If you still feel help would resolve your health issue, being bearable and not with much pain, I would need further information from YOU as asked above.

Awaiting your information soon.

Do's -besides above suggestions-
Utterly No Action-
Till that time- don't blindly manipulate on your own, which may complicate the damage already done

Welcome for any further query in this regard.

Good Day !!
