Awesome news!!! Hard to believe the urge eventually passes, but it seems your method is working and that's something we can pass on to others. I would have assumed that if it was done on the toilet, the urge to expel would be more..but it seems it's not.
White-knuckling is all we can do to get through "those" bms or the urge after administering the enemas. I've only had to expel two (or maybe 3) over the past 19+ years.
I do on occasion get a wave of urge about
an hour afterward sometimes...it passes quickly...
Methinks you're doing marvelously!!!
