Once the laxatives work, you can feed some canned 100% pumpkin, it must be 100% pumpkin NOT pumpkin pie filling, to her everyday to help prevent the problem for recurring. For a dog her size I'd start with 1 teaspoon of the pumpkin, and if necessary increase the amount to 1 1/2 teaspoon.
Again wait for the laxatives to work before starting with the pumpkin. The last thing you want is to make matters worse.
Honestly, I don't think your dog is all that old, and so long as she's in otherwise good health I think that she'd do O.K. with the surgery. All surgeries do carry risk but the risk isn't associated with age so much as the general health of the patient, and the type of surgery that's being done. Hopefully your girl will pass the stool and will not need the surgery.
