I can say a whole bunch about enema’s. When we were at our darkest times, we would turn to using an enema as an option to something before going to an irrigation. The child ‘bulb’ enemas are not what I am talking about. The ones that we used are designed for kids aged 2-11
We’d insert the entire contents of the enema and then wait. On a good day we would get a return within a half hour. Many times nothing would come out and then we would be force to irrigate. It might be a given, but we would always smear a little ky-jelly on the tip before we would insert.
