mysticdoc :

Thanks for your question.

mysticdoc :

You can use your fingers to disimpact yourself ( pulling out the stool).

mysticdoc :

Another option will be to use an enema

mysticdoc :

make sure you are taking enough dietary fibers.

Customer: If I have pushed for an hour off and on should I stop trying?
mysticdoc :

You can take citrucel fibers along with colace.

mysticdoc :

yes you should stop trying to push.

Customer: This is awful
mysticdoc :

yes understand but the stool will come out with enema

drink plenty of fluids also
