Hi.
Thanks for your query and an elucidate history.

The causes of constipation, abdominal distension, vomiting black colored substance is suggestive of the following::
-Intestinal obstruction of whatsoever cause.
-Fecal impaction.
-Uremia.

I would advise you the following::
Take your father to ER / Hospital.
Get an X-ray of the abdomen in the standing position.
Blood for CBC, urea, creatinine , liver function tests, sugar, electrolytes.
Urine : routine.

There is a possibility of a mass / Cancer ; this has to be ruled by a colonoscpy after a preparation.
I find this answer helpful
