I suggest that you use Laxette syrup, 15ml twice daily in combination with Softlax tablets, two at night for at least 10 days, to soften your stools. You should also add fibre to your diet. A good product is Solgar Multiple fibre tablets available at health shops.

To start the process, you can use a product like Coli-prep as soon as possible. This is used to clean the bowel before operations and is available over the counter. Once your bowel is cleaned, continue with the Laxette syrup, softlax and fibre tablets for at least the 10 day period.

Please feel free to post another question if this does not relieve your symptoms.
