N.F.L.: Trying to remove that rectal 'football'? Well, enemas will initially work, but 'not for long'. Once the moisture is taken out of feces you will continue to play 'hardball'. Drink plenty of fluids, eat fiber rich foods, and have a first meal of the day evacuation plan that keeps the rectum from being a 'storage silo' for long periods of time will provide long term results.
