Why do I need to give myself an enema before my prostate biopsy procedure?

Dr. James Lin Dr. Lin
1 doctor agreed:

Because...: The presence of fecal material inside the rectum will not just interfere sound transmission so to impair the imaging quality of the prostate. But also make the rectum be more bacteria-rich environment so to increase chance of infecting the prostate.

So, an enema accomplishes these two goals; our body can defend and life can live on without a hitch. ...Read more

It is normal: It is very understandable to have anxiety about a be. Let the tech know that you are feeling anxious and ask any questions you have until you feel comfortable proceeding. Once underway, the best thing is to just breathe. Breathing does wonders for relaxation. Hopefully your team will do whatever it takes to make it as comfortable as possible for you.

When you get a barium enema, how long or round is piece that is inserted into rectum? I am nervous about the whole procedure!

Not Big: I've been the inserter and the insertee. The tip is about as thick as an index finger with a mild area of widening about an inch from the end of the tip. A small balloon may be inflated after the tip is inserted (with lots of lubricant). The balloon helps you keep the enema from leaking out. Only a few inches of the tip will get inserted. Try not to get too worked up. The prep is a bigger deal. ...Read more

I had botox injections in my internal anal sphincter 3 days ago and used a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) to go and it burned. Is it ok to use fleet after that procedure?

I had botox injections in my internal anal sphincter 3 days ago and used a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) to go and it burned. Is it ok to use fleet after that procedure?

Ask your doctor: This is a very specific question. Presumably, your colorectal surgeon or gastroenterologist performed the injections for a spastic sphincter. You would be best served asking your doctor directly. It does take 7 days for Botox to fully work which may be helpful in planning your stool softening program. ...Read more

I had botox injections in my internal anal sphincter 3 days ago and used a fleet enema (sodium bisphosphate) to go and it burned. Is it ok to use fleet after that procedure?

First time?: Botox traditionally takes 5 days to really take effect and so I am not sure it has fully relaxed the sphincter. I need more info. It is not uncommon for sphincter otomy to be performed with fissure treatment. However if only Botox was injected (no surgery) and you have previously used fleets without burning, I would contact your gastroenterologist as you may have caused an injury. ...Read more
