Hello and thanks for your question.It's my first priority to help you.Has he tried any medicines so far?Bloating and flatulence?Pain abdomen?Duration of symptoms?Any other medical illness?Thanks.
Thanks for the follow-up.I understand your concern.
As per your description,he can try a warm mineral oil enema.
Sunflower seeds can cause the stool to be come impacted, making it very difficult to pass. If the impaction is too large, it has to be manually removed by a doctor at ER.
If the mineral oil enema works, then a stool softener for a few days will help prevent another impaction.
Do not force anything, and be very gentle so that he doesn't injure himself. Don't try to manually remove any stool himself as it can cause rectal bleeding,severe pain so don't hesitate and wait and visit ER.
