In some patients with constipation, the fecal mass has reached the anus, and it can even be directly seen that there is a fecal block obstructing the anal opening, causing sewage or bleeding in the anus, or touching a hard fecal mass with a finger during a digital examination, but it just cannot be discharged. Most of these patients are elderly, weak, physically weak or bedridden for a long time. At this time, other methods are not advisable. It is the best choice to use fingers to reach into the anus and directly take out the fecal mass.
The method of removing the feces with your fingers is: put on the gloves and apply some lubricating oil or hemorrhoid ointment on the gloves, gently stretch into the anus from the side of the feces, squeeze the feces into pieces with your fingers, and rub the feces little by little. Pull out. For those who are hard to form a "fecal rock", it is best to go to the hospital to ask a doctor to use a vascular forceps or toothed forceps to remove the fecal block. Be careful not to damage the anus to avoid infection.
