Well, because of my obesity I cannot reach to do it in bed and only can reach on the toilet. I have thought about asking my husband of 48 years to help me but just can't! He knows that problem I have and has not volunteered. I cannot use the mesalamine enemas and the steroid type don't come in foam - wish it did. I have used the Protofoam but with no help. Oh well, we have to deal with this the best way we can - certainly should not be embarrased!
