Fecal impaction: Probably you need a soap suds enema. Hopefully it works , if it does not then you need a manual evacuation of the stool. I am not sure how you can be helped best. I would suggest to go to ER if you can not get a hold of your doctor to do something about it such as i mentioned above.
