    Hi, you can always try to do enemas or regularly take stool softeners like Normalax or paraffin oil. If you still suffer from difficulty passing stool, you should go for a colonoscopy in order to rule out something blocking the colon.

    Bowel rest --- don't eat or drink anything besides just ice cubes for a day or three. Then when you start eating, just liquids like bone broth. Gradually introduce solids back until you're at your regular diet again

    I have exactly the same question - it’s incredibly painful and frustrating, is there any simpler way to do this?
