Alright, there is nothing to be embarrassed about. When something like this happens it is usually better to fill a tub with warm water and sit in it and try to pass the stool. If that does not work you can manipulate the stool with your fingers gently trying to stimulate both the rectum and also gently trying to dis-impact the stool.

If that does not work then, give it some more time, try to take a walk for about 10 minutes and massage the belly. You can also use glycerine suppositories if all else fails.

If still stuck, then getting medical attention is warranted.

I sincerely ***** ***** I have helped you, and that I have earned my 5 star rating today!

We can continue here until you are satisfied, simply use the reply box and let me know. Thank you!

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
