2nd time Ive been constipated in a row. The 1st time I had to use an enema. Now its been 4 days. Ive been eating fruits veggies prunes. Still nothIng.
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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

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. ...Read more

I've been constipated for over a week. On Wednesday I used an enema with barely any results. Friday I did another with the same results.
Is it OK, as an exception or say once a month, to take three small 5oz enemas in a morning for thorough cleansing, nothing to do with constipation.
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 ...Read more

I have been constipated for about 2 years and I am considering an enema. I would like to know the repercussions of an enema and i'm only doing it once?
Constipation: A low gentle enema should not harm you if you have the urge to have a bm but can't. Inserting a glycerin rectal suppository provides lubrication. If you have no urge to move your bowels, you may need advice regarding diet, liquids, fiber intake and the taking of stool softeners or a gentle stimulant like senokot (senna). It would be best to consult a gastroenterologist for advice and treatment. ...Read more
