To much in my anus to poop. Will a stool softener or enema help?

In brief: Enema over softener
Enema will likely help more than a softener, since the stool is already in the rectum. Sometimes, digital disimpaction is needed - using your finger to help remove stool/start the bowel movement.
Be careful though.
