I have my first appointment with the rectal doctor tomorrow and I'm really afraid to use this? Like how far do you stick the tip in and does it give you soft stool or screaming you know what's? Hah sorry. If someone could let me know how this works I'd appreciate it! BtwiI have to do this an hour before my appt too
You will have gas pains and the same urgency you feel if you take a laxative. Once you have evacuated and your colon is clean, it will stop. The tip should be inserted to the base of the tip. If you encounter resistance in your rectum, do not force it. Squeeze the bottle once and wait maybe 30 seconds and try again to insert the tip. If you still feel resistance, insert the tip as far as you can comfortably insert it and squeeze the remainder of the solution from the bottle. It is not a laxative, but a "colon cleansing" (for lack of a better term). It will not give you diarrhea if you do not already have it. I hope your appointment goes well tomorrow.
Dear mrsSheaffer - An enema is the easiest form of lower bowel cleansing there is for any type of examination. When you get the liquid inside you, hold it as long as you can. This allows better cleansing and less likely to have to repeat procedure, which often happens when lower bowel not emptied. Take your time, following directions such as positioning, etc. Not knowing what to expect is the worst part. Good luck, hon, be well, as can be...
