Sleep enema?????

Okay - as I just wrote - I am on for Wed. am sugery. They finally called to give me pre-op instructions from the castle. The nurse said that I will need to do a "sleep enema" on Tuesday night. I have read the posts of others regarding bowel prep - but have not heard about a sleep enema. It is sounding a little scarry.... my fantanstic "trying to be sooo supportive husband" said "but what if it makes you poop the bed in the middle of the night?" I was worried enough BEFORE that comment! So, does anyone know anything about this exciting topic?? Thanks!

Sleep enema?????

Well, curiousity got the better of me here so I did a google search for a 'sleep' enema, but didn't come up with anything.

Then I started wondering, do you think you may not have heard her properly and she meant a "Fleet" enema? Fleet is a very common brand of enema (and the one I got to use!).

Still curious.

Sleep enema?????

Well, it is hard to say. I was trying to listen to her over the dogs barking and the kids (who always have important stories to tell as soon as I am on the phone).. I hope I got the rest of the info right, although there was not much given. I suppose I will go with that and hope that I have it right. I have never done an enema before..... never really wanted to.
