n. A rectal blockage is a large mass of dry, hard stool that can develop in the rectum due to chronic constipation. This mass may be so hard that it cannot come out of the body. Watery stool from higher in the bowel may move around the mass and leak out, causing soiling or diarrhea.
I had a rectal blockage for a week and finally had to seek professional help to have it removed. No more cheese for me!
