... hard things out rather than soft?

It's been hard using the RR bc of hospital meds. Now there is bleeding when I go because ive been forcing it out. They have stopped my meds and gave me ex-lax. So I'm wondering:

If it already hurts bad to go and they are hard coming out, will taking ex-lax help with that? Will taking it just force more hard things out then soft?
I'm already swollen and bleeding, how long should I wait to take the new exlax? How long will I be in the RR after I take it?
