life after a stroke

hello,
My dad had a massive stroke 9 months ago, he’s left side is completely paralyzed, after physical therapy he has some use of his leg but still, he can’t walk.
He’s aware of everything ad has no problem talking, but from time to time he has some hallucinations about people being around him and talking to him, but snaps to reality after few sec.
But my main concern is his bowel movements, every few days he gets this sharp pain in his bowels and has difficulty knowing if his done, but the pain is making him crazy, yelling and screaming asking us to end his life…
please advice if you have any ideas or has anyone been in a similar situation and can help!
Thank you

Hallucinations can be a byproduct of some of the drugs hes taking. Talk to the docs about altering the dosage.
