In brief: Impaction is likely.

Please call your doctor to determine the best cleanout protocol for you based on your medical history.

In brief: Fissure, maybe...

You may have a fissure- an acute crack or tear in the anal canal that is quite painful.
Spasm of pelvic floor muscles and nonrelaxation of the sphincter can make it difficult to move bowels. Drink plenty of water, try a stool sotener, but above all, see your doctor asap for diagnosis in person, and to rule out more concerning issues that may be present.
