Hi friendly Gal,
I read your post and it's bizarre as I've got a practice nurse coming today to administer an enema at my home. I've tried the water based enemas from the pharmacy but sometimes if the constipations too severe these just don't do it. Jens right, these kind of enemas only really help the lower colon, not the rest. In some cases this is enough to get the bowel moving and if it does there's no real harm in using them, although I personlly wouldn't like to use them as the only evacuation method. I'm getting a long tube enema from the nurse and this should do the trick for now. I find these VERY painful when theyr'e working to remove the faeces and it can take a good 2-3 ours for the effects to finish. I'm not too sure about the colon cleanse products though, sorry. Hope someone else has more info. I too understand your desperation, it truly is an awful situation to be in, you often feel like, "how much more can my bowel hold without bursting!!" Good luck
