There are essentially 2 options

1)enema. You can get a fleet enema OTC or have one done in the ER

2)manual disimpaction. This is where the doctor inserts a finger into the rectum and removes the impacted stool. I have had to do this a few times. It is not pleasant for doctor or patient but is often needed.

I recommend you go to ER and have it checked
