Brief Answer:
Possible colon stricture

Detailed Answer:
Hi and welcome to HCM.

Considering your irradiation, this may be colon stricture or stenosis. This means that colons is narrowed and stool may not easy go through it. You should get done colonoscopy to rule this out.

Also you should regulate your stool consistency by drinking more fluids, talking probiotics, vegetables and avoid chocolate, fried food and alcohol.

Wish you good health.
