Can I safely use two fleet enemas (sodium bisphosphate) within a few hours?

Fleets enemas: Yes, unless you have heart disease or kidney disease, but if one fleets enema does not provide results, tehn a fleets mineral oil enema and a bottle of magnesium citrate will most likely give you better results. If the problem persists, then see your physician.

I accidentally took two enemas in a twenty four hour period, should I be concerned?

Probably not: It shouldn't but just monitor for abdominal pain, persistent diarrhea, or bloating. If so, see your doctor. Usually all you have to do is take a probiotic or eat some yogurt (organic with active cultures).

What would a two quart 50/50 vinegar and water enema actually feel like?

What would a two quart 50/50 vinegar and water enema actually feel like?

Why the need?: I can't say I could tell you what it would feel like. Myself and many other naturopaths and mds that specialize in detox feel enemas are often unnecessary. Learn how to potentiate the capacity of your liver to detoxify (mthfr and other gene mutations limit this - you may need high doses of activated folate). Lots of fiber will help toxins exit your body without aggressive enemas.

Please describe a good enema to use for long term constipation (two years)?

Please describe a good enema to use for long term constipation (two years)?

Fleet: Plain or mineral oil is ok. However, you need to be examined to determine the cause of your recent constipation, with a colonoscopy if you haven't had one in the past few years. Also try eating a high fiber diet and drinking more fluids and less caffeine and alcohol both of which contribute to constipation.

I'm gonna have anal sex tomorrow. I bought two enemas. Should I take one tonight and the other tomorrow morning?

Enema use: Your colon usually keeps the rectal vault clear of feces until you are ready to make a bowel movement. Taking an enema the night before is probably not helpful because overnight, more stool may move into the rectum. It is usually sufficient to perform a single enema an hour or two before you want to be empty.

Bowel change: Since this is a change in your usual bowel pattern, it shouldn't be ignored and a colonoscopy may be in order. Your stools suggest recent constipation and if increasing fluid intake and fiber or Metamucil in your daily diet doesn't get you back to normal regularity, it's important to be evaluated by a gastroenterologist. If you haven't had a screening colonoscopy, this is a good time to get one.

Bowel backed up: This is abnormal and you may have a partial obstruction or a problem with your colon. You need to call your doctor for advice and get a check up asap to see what the cause of the problem is. If you can not see a doctor or iF you suddenly get a lot worse go to ER.

Had impacted stool. Used two glycerin suppositories and nothing happened. Used one full fleet saline enema. Relief. Stuff still there. Can I use again?

Try: A Fleet mineral oil enema. hold it in for 30 minutes if possible and lying on your left side with feet on a pillow above your hips. Once cleared, to avoid recurrence, make sure you are drinking 80-100 oz of caffeine free/alcohol free fluid daily.

I toke two laxative two night ago an yesterday I felt sick so did a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) an it only got small amount out I stay constipated?

Constipation: Not sure what laxative you used. Normally, I would recommend the patient to have adequate hydration, stay active with exercising, eat high fiber diet. In addition, add fiber supplement such as citrucel (one table spoon in 8 oz of water daily). If the above is not improved, add MiraLAX (otc, one table spoon in 8 oz of water, daily to bid). Other agents are linzess, amitiza (lubiprostone). Work close with drs.

My mom hasn't had a bowel movement for 5 days. After 3 enemas, she passed two marble sized pieces that were hard as a rock. Emergency?

Dependa: Constipation itself is not an emergency and would be treated with an oral laxative from the drug store. If there is abdominal pain and vomiting then be seen by a doctor or at an emergency room.

THD surgery tomorrow and prep calls for two fleet enemas 2 hrs before surgery. Do I do one after another or one have a bowel movement and then another?

THD surgery tomorrow and prep calls for two fleet enemas 2 hrs before surgery. Do I do one after another or one have a bowel movement and then another?

You can do: 1 after the other, so you to make sure your colon is cleaned out prior to surgery. That way you do not have bowel retention or obstruction problems after surgery is done and you are recuperating likely on narcotics. Thanks for trusting in HealthTap.

Can the use of two enemas have a side effect of frequent bowel movements for a week?

Can the use of two enemas have a side effect of frequent bowel movements for a week?

They shouldn't: Two enemas should not have a side effect of frequent bowel movements for a week. It sounds like something else is going on. If you changed your gut flora with the enemas, you might have an overgrowth of unhealthy bacteria which is causing and perpetuating the problem. Consider some probiotics to help the problem.
