In my pre-op instructions I have to give myself a fleet enema the night before the surgery! Anyone else have to do this? Anyone ever done this? Any pointers? I'm LOL right now, I feel so immature, just the word enema is making me giggle!

Re: Enema?!

I had to do one the night before my TVH. The directions on the package are pretty clear and easy to follow. It's not nearly as bad as you would think - just use a little KY to lubricate the tip of the dispenser and go for it.

I did it lying on my side on a rug on the bathroom floor - I would NOT do it in another room and then attempt to walk to the bathroom.

Re: Enema?!

I don't know yet if I have to do one, but I'm with you on the word just making me giggle like some immature dork. Don't feel bad on that part, I think it's kinda normal.

Re: Enema?!

I have to tell you that I have IBS and I have done a few, well my wonderful husband did it for me. I was a little embarrasssed at first but he was ok with it so it made me feel better. And they do work fast, good tip is to try and lay down as long as you can so that it can work properly.

Re: Enema?!

Ok Ladies, Lets not laugh..
I had to do the Fleet Enema...Holy cow it is wrong on all levels...It was easier than I thought. I suggest laying on your side on a thick bath towel on the bathroom floor. Stay on the floor a few minutes and keep your butt cheeks clinched until your reach the potty.
Also, many have not thought about....You might want to shave your...hmmmm...not completely but don't leave much or they will shave it for you.
I had a male RN. Yaaaa. I was glad I had taken care of that myself.
