What is a Sleep Enema?

I asked what type of bowel prep I would need this morning (along with a laundry list of other questions I was too stunned to ask about before) and they told me I waould need a "Sleep Enema" the night before.

It doesn't google up. Help?

You may want to call and double check that. It is my guess that you mis-heard and you will probably need a "Fleet" enema. It is definitely better to call and double check however.

I think you're right. She said it could be purchased at Walgreens.

Never done one before. Ew.

I'm with you there. I have never done one either, but I have to Thursday evening to prep for my surgery. All I can say is that I am NOT looking forward to that!

I did a Fleet enema before when I was dangerously close to becoming impacted after a c-section. Not fun but it wasn't too much of a hassle. Just make sure you have a good book to read while you're on the throne!
