Dr. Robert Kwok answered:

Is there a homemade solution to use by enema method to soothe my colon pain? Colonoscopy messed me up badly.

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.

Is an Enema bag with the tube good for bladder enema? Or does it have to have a catheter? Ones that are use specifically for that.

Hello.

Hello. If you aren't trained or knowledgeable about administering an enema, than you shouldn't be administering it.

Barium Enma test requires i drink a prep & enema 4 evacuation. But i have an ostomy bag and stoma. Should I take the prep if my rectum is inactive?

Yes

Stoma
I will say "yes" because you put out stool through your colostomy bag and therefore it needs to be removed before barium enema. The only question I really have is why would you need to have barium enema to evaluate your colon when you can have colonoscopy? When barium enema is done on people without colostomy, they are usually expected to contract their anal sphincter to hold it. What about you?

Dr. Dmitry Rakita answered:

BEFORE colonostomy bag was put on me, Barium Enema test was 2 painful. AFTER it was put on, Dr. said "BE won't hurt now" because of operation. True?

Probably

Barium_enema
since the barium enema tip can now be inserted into the colostomy, rather than the anus, it may be more comfortable.

What is an enema?

Hard to pass

Enema
An enema is typically used for people who are constipated. The individual inserts a tube into the rectum to infuse fluid into the bowel and encourage a bowel movement. Ordinary enemas contain tap water, mixtures of soap and water, glycerine and water, or other materials. Prior to using an enema, it is advisable to consukt with a physician to determine if this is the proper treatment.
