Before self-treating: Doctors define constipation as stools less frequently than once every 3-4 days. Patients feel they are "constipated" when passing hard or small volume stool, or they feel full & bloated. Had an x-ray to show you're not blocked? We don't know if your gut is sluggish or your rectum works correctly--these can be tested for (sitz marker study ; anal manometry, respectively). See a GI specialist.
I used an enema for constipation and a small amount of frank red blood was in the toilet afterwards and upon wiping. Shortly After, I passed another small BM, with no blood present, and no blood present with wiping but am still freaked out. Is this just p
Stop enemas: Try 8-10 glasses of warer daily, fresh fruit and vegetables. You are hurting yourself if not done under a physician's supervision or advice: I advise NONE.
Rectum burns after I gave myself an enema- I still feel full. Just had colonoscopy it was clean, am I really constipated?
See your GI: If colonoscopy was "clean" means both your colon was cleaned out of stool and clear to visualize well surface and it was clear of any abnormalities then you have rectal burning after giving yourself an enema then wonder if you injured yourself inappropriately administering the enema to yourself. Rectal burning can also occur from drinking dr pepper. Check back with GI who did your colonoscopy.

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 completely emptied myself out last tuesday, but now I'm constipated again and I'm afraid to use an enema or to go by myself.
Constipation.: Sounds like you may need something to help keep you regular. Regular adequate fluid intake is key in your age group for preventing constipation. Secondarily, daily stool softeners may help. Consider dioctyl sodium succinate or a similar med from your pharmacy - talk to the pharmacist or to your doc.

Fiber not Enema: Careful, stretching your colon/rectum can over stretch it and cause adjustment and damage in the nerve receptors that control the peristalsis and sensation of going to the BR. Some people end up chronically constipated, always needing an enema. It is best to eat much fiber, so it naturally moves quickly. If a "toxin" was not absorbed over "miles" of small intestine villus, it will not be absorbed
