Yes, but: I don't thing they would help much. Your best bet is to buy a few enemas.Follow the directions on the bottle. Try to hold the contents inside for as long as possible (1-0-15 min would be good) and then try to empty as much as possible. You may need to try again in a day or so. Consult your doc if this isn't helping.
