It happened to me again this morning after breakfast. I had to pee and poop badly but could not do either. The constipation was caused by a weekend reckless eating. I can feel the big stool inside my rectum trying to get out but i could not push it out. It seemed like the full bladder made pooping more difficult. And the full rectum pinched on the prostate and urethra, making peeing impossible.
Luckily I was able to poop after half an hour of pushing with different positions. Urination was easy after that. The same thing happened to a friend before, and he had to go to emergency.
Actually, it did happen to me once before, over a year ago. I was so ignorant at the time, did not even think of emergency. I didn't know that anything can be done but waiting. So I waited for several days before going to emergency. I ended up with UTI, water-flooded kidneys, and probably a bad bladder with retention.
I think this might happen to other people, perhaps often under the BPH disguise. My question is what would be the best way to handle this situation. I was ready to self cath to relieve the bladder, and considered using something to manually breakup the stool. Luckily I did not have to do that, this time. Did it happen to you ? How would you do it, removing a hard, dry piece of stool from your body, at home ? Taking a laxative would be an answer but it may take too long to take effect.
