Brief Answer:
most likely impacted stool manual evacuation has to be done by nurse.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for query,
Most likely you have fecal impaction and you have to go for Digital evacuation.It involves the use of fingers to aid in the removal of stool from the rectum.Stool is emptied by gently inserting a finger into the rectum and removing it.You need to go to the nearest healthcare provider or have to call a nurse for the same.
Thanks.
