Brief Answer:
Most likely fecal impaction.

Detailed Answer:
Hi,
Thanks for choosing HealthcareMagic for your query,
I've gone through all of your details.

As per your query, i would suggest you to go to emergency soon. Most likely, it's Fecal impaction.

A fecal impaction is a solid immobile bulk of feces that has developed in the rectum as a result of chronic constipation. As you have a history of bowel obstruction and multiple surgeries you are a candidate prone for such impaction.

Abdominal pain, persistent urge to move the bowels, malaise, excessive bloating are all signs of fecal impaction. Go to the nearest emergency; Digital extraction of stools will be performed by the doctors there.

Wish you a good health and quick recovery.

Regards

I have been in and out of hospitals and doctors, their conclusion is I need to eat more fruit and vegies and drink lots of water. I have been eating these food for most of my life I am now 48. I find that when I need to use my bowls now my legs go really weak and I get very sharp head ache pains. Why is this happening? Can you help?

Hello, I have an anal skin tag which I've had since my young childhood (I had chronic constipation when I was young). It has not bothered me until recently (I'm 21), and I've been extremely stressed at work and my food intake as been less than healthy, thus resulting in constipation. My stools have been very hard, and it almost feels like there was a "rip" or fissure, and it always tends to be more sensitive around the tag when I have a bowel movement. After my bowel movement, it was quite a bit of blood in the toilet, but only in the water, as my stools looked normal (light brown, regular shape) with no blood actually in the stool itself. Is it possible that I have hemmroids? If so, what can I do to get rid of them, and prevent this from happening later on?
