Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. It appears you have constipation and prolonged sitting posture for defecation causes the symptoms. Treat the cause of constipation, use laxatives modify diet and lifestyle and reduce sitting time on commode and hope for the best.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
