In brief: Worrisome/ fixable

You should seek out a gastroenterologist with experience in bowel rehab.
The large intestines will balloon after months/years of stool retention & this weakens emptying. Reversing the process requires a colon clean out & regular scheduled emptying using a variety of methods.It can take a year or more to rehab your system but it is doable. Short term cleanout without follow up work is wasted effort
