Re: enema

No. The 'after effects' can be a little uncomfortable...mild cramping but only for a few minutes until your bowel empties. At the risk of TMI, I had one the other day; I'm 12 days post-op & was backed up & felt horrible. The enema felt wonderful (ok ewww, but true).

Re: enema

It is not painful at all. I was given a bottle of liquid and was told I could insert and squirt it myself or the nurse could do it for me! I chose to try it myself. The tip is lubricated so it slid in and then you squeeze the bottle to release the liquid. It didnt hurt at all. About 15 minutes after I got the urge to go to the bathroom. I had a powerful watery BM. It didn't hurt at all. I had one more small one and that was it.

It helped to walk around when the liquid was released.
