Be seen: You should not be having pain in the colon after a colonoscopy. See your physician for an exam.

Wouldn't go there!: Humans are not designed to have people create homemade solutions to send up the butt. A G.I. Specialist can help, along with a primary care doctor. There may be approved enemas out there, but their effects and their side effects on a particular patient (and his or her underlying medical issues) should be carefully considered before venturing into enema territory.
