Geez, I had a whole long post to this that got lost somewhere. Maybe it was too long, HA
Brandon, are you actually leaking or feeling like you are? Could it be gas?
I'm using generics, but I noticed that I can get air out of the gen rowasa, but not the gen cortenema. When I squeeze the bottle, liquid comes out almost immediately, making it messy to use.
Can you use an antispasmodic an hour to 1/2 hour before using the enemas? 1/2 lomotil is works well for me.
You might look at Dr. A's response to Hans on spacing out his enemas... I thought it made a LOT of sense with good suggestions. I'll try to find it and bump it up.
I suspect as you heal this will get a lot easier and more comfortable for you.
