Ask PoopReport: Even Enemas Won't Empty It

Dear PoopReport,

I've been using (overusing) Fleet enemas after months of severe constipation -- so severe that I went weeks at a time without going. I was on Zelnorm, but they took it off market back in April.

I was so constipated that I tried everything both over the counter and prescription. And I mean everything: GoLytley, Miralax, Lactulose, Senkot, Dulcolax, Colace, Amitiza... and on and on. Finally, even my gastroenterologist turned to me and said, "What do you want from me -- to pull it out for you?"

So I got hooked on daily Fleet enemas. At first, they worked fine. Then they stopped working. So I added Dulcolax at night and then the enema. And then that stopped, too.

NOW. Now the enema gets stuck -- retained -- in my belly. I feel no urge to go even after five or ten minutes. So I'll try to expel it, and hardly anything comes out. Sometimes, two hours later, with a belly full of enema fluid, I'll cramp and some will come out.

I don't understand -- what's going on? I have a salty mouth and I'm getting weaker and weaker. Has this happened to anybody else? Or am I the Lone Ranger on this one?

P.S. In all seriousness, I'm suffering terribly.

When you are desperate, you'll try anything - so what about Feyjan tea? A friend, who has been constipated all her life till she started using it two years ago, tells me it has made her a 'daily girl'.

Look, some women get the heebee jeebees about breast cancer and have a pre-emptive double mastectomy. Maybe you should consider a pre-emptive colostomy.

In any case, you need to find a new gastro-enterologist.

And lay off the white rice and cheese casseroles.

Here's the problem with laxatives (and enemas, I suppose): you can get addicted.

The muscles that push poop through your stomach are called peristaltic muscles. Like every other muscle in your body, they need to be exercised, or else they grow week. When you take a laxative, you are taking the job away from your muscles. The more laxatives you take, the less of a workout your muscles get, and the weaker they become -- which, of course, makes you turn to even more laxatives.

It's a vicious circle. And it sounds like you've gone around the circle a few too many times -- your muscles are so atrophied that not even enemas work.

What can you do? For one, you need to get a doctor to recognize the problem for what it really is. Beyond that, I don't know if there are any techniques for peristaltic muscle rehab. My friend, I'm sorry to say, but you may have a colostomy bag in your future.

Ahhhh I would consider perhaps taking a lonnnnnng look at your diet and consider adding a LOT more fiber to it. I would try everything before giving into the dreaded "bag" apparatus. Good luck and godspeed!

It sounds like you heavily abused laxatives, and now have what is called "Lazy Bowel Syndrome".

You DO NOT want to use any more laxatives, discontinue them at once.

Now, you have to retrain your bowel to work on its own. I had a mild case of lazy bowel syndrome.

I overcame this with a Dr, Natura colon cleanse. The key here is to go lightly on the "Clari Tea", because it contains senna.

You need to re-balance your GI enzymes. I used Alkalive Purple, with positive results. Lastly, you might want to use Digestrol.

Do NOT use all of these products at once. They have to be used in steps, over a period of months. It is a long process, but it works.

Here are some links:
www.techmedica.com
www.coloncleansingforum.com
www.ph-ion.com

I wish you nothing but the best of luck.

Quickly stop your laxative/enema use.

Slowly increase your fiber intake (oatmeal, rice, whole grain breads, apples).

Boost your friendly GI bacteria (yogurt - buy it plain and add your own fresh fruit)

See a Doctor!

What your doctor said to you was rude and thoughtless, unless he/she said it in a totally joking way and you have a good relationship with him/her.

Please get a second opinion, and quickly. Hopefully, you'll be able to jump start your bowel activity and find a health professional who can help you.

JCG, if you're starting to get weak and your mouth tastes salty, you need to go to the emergency room, not sit around waiting for answers on a poop humor site.

You may be suffering from a severe medical condition other than simple constipation, especially if you've taken laxatives so long. You could have liver and kidney failure, not to mention some metabolic disorders.

Whether these were caused by your laxative abuse or the condition was there before and led to your laxative abuse, you need to follow the advice of some above posters and get a second opinion.

I know this! I read pathology for fun... God I'm such a dork!

It has been a while since I have used a fleet so I dont remember the exact wording but there is a warning on the box to get medical attention if you retain one over a certain amount of time. I am not a health care professional but my common sense tells me you need to get to the ER. After your immeadiate problem is treated I believe you need to find another doctor. I know it is hard to find competent medical care but you need to find a doctor who cares enough to find out why you are having this problem. If you have a primary care physician discuss the problem with him/her for advice on how to treat this untill you can see someone else. Again after your immeadiate problem has been treated you may want to research Zelnorm and see if this is a common problem when stopping the drug and if it is how it is treated.

Hi all,
Thank you all 4 your concern and advice. I am up shit's creek and, some have advised, "Go to the ER". I've been to the ER at least 4 times in the past 5 months and I'm so weak at this point...can't make that 12 hour wait.
In addition, I had my main MD...put me in the hospital and he was supposed to set me up for a "complete GI series"! Well, in the end, they only did X-Ray (verifying, that I was "full of shit...head to toe". Then did MRI...but then stopped there. And threw me into a diet of get this, "Miralax 2X a day instead of once, Lactulose 30g X 2daily, Senokot 2pills X 2 a day, and Amitiza. And all the the above, I've been on or was on already. And I told them this and they just wanted me out. Had a real attitude towards me.
Back in last May, I went in for Colonscopy and I was so backed up even then, that after a PEG Solution (1 Gallon) of that disgusting tasting stuff), and I barely made some diahrea...and then, I was put in hospital and they had me do "Magnesium Citrate" several bottles, to help clean me for the colonscopy. Sure enough, I awoke and the surgeon said, "sorry guy...but, we were only able to see just barely 1/2 your colon."
So this is going on for a long time...and I've been rotating...I've been through heavy fiber/fluids...increasing gas, distension but no bmovements.
I'm so weak...I can barely get out of bed (just to check the internet).
Now, here's one thing I left out...(cause I know "how it sounds"...but, here goes. In the last 6 weeks, I've been finding what I can only describe as "worms" in the few and far between BM's I get...often when I do enema and expel some liquod, I get a few of the tan/very light brown, always about 8-12" things with always 2 rounded parts at either side.
Now I don't know if it's some form of mucous or in fact, worms. I finally, got a new GI md and he gave me a "Para-pak" kit. So, I have to bring it back (for me that's a rough...cause so weak). However, if it turns out negative...gotta find a really GOOD GI specialist either in the New York, borough of Queens area or Nassau County/Manhasset area (where my main MD's hospital is...but don't want to go back to that GI dept).
I'll tell you all...reading your comments scared the shit out of me (if only it "literally" scared the shit out of me, then I'm be on the road back to life. But, I truly appreciate all your writings.
Unfortunately, my wife cut out on me when all the hospitalizations occured. "In sickness or in health" didn't mean to her what it meant to me...and moved outta state. And since I have a primary illness (which took out all of the friends I had, growing up, and my family all left NYC years ago...Suddenly, I find myself in a very bad situation.
I know I should be in the hospital...the pain is killing me, I can barely eat anymore...and I went into my stash of some "saved bottles of Zelnorm" and sure enough, after 2 days of taking it..."no BMovement". So maybe, I've already destroyed (w/the enemas) my ability to have a BM w/out, as some suggest about "a bag in my future" (or sooner). That's really scary.

Well, thanks again...life has gotten so small for me, and I appreciate the feedback.
Thanks, Jay

Healthy1,
I read the ingredients on the Enzymes (Alkalive Violet) and they had all the important ones (I ran outta enzymes a few months ago). So that looks really good.
I'm a little unsure of the Dr Natura and Digestrol because they have like hundreds of Testimonials and the price doesn't help either...get weird vibes. But if you used one of them and definately got good results...let me know.
Then again, if I'm already screwed as some suggested (and surely could be correct), that it's too late for me...and a colostomy is upcoming. Oh shit. Well, the thing is ...by the time I place the orders and receive products...I might already be either in the hospital or "under the knife"...Damn....Jay(NY)

Good god man! It is very very possible to have a "human worm infestation" you must seek medical attention in the most blatient and urgent means possible.

The "bag" is going to be the least of your worries if have an infestion. They are parasites, that meand they are feeding off of you!!

Just think of dozens of pencil thick foot-plus long worms in your gut.

You are going to die either from starvation, organ failure, toxic shock or heart attack when you final shit and you look in your toliet and see what looks like 2lbs of wet cooked spagetti moving about in the water.

God bless you!

Dear god...I revisit the site to find a humorous poop story and instead hear some poor guy's shitless life. Dude, the fact that your "mouth is salty" should give you a hint: you are very very dehydrated. Dear god, DRINK WATER. I HATE people who say "Why should i drink if I'm not thirsty?" or "I don't need to drink water i don't exersize that much.". Drink water. I don't care if it's Gatorade, and if you choke it down, DRINK IT. Use things like metamucil, and eat nothing but salads. But before that happens, DON'T go to a hospital if they're that bad to you. Go to a private clinic, book for soon, and the doctor WILL treat you.

If you DO NOT start doin those things you will die.

Shitler - Poop Nazi. I also have a joke about him hating Pews (that's Jews + Poo) but maybe that's a little offensive...

JCG, perhaps your problem in the bowels is just a symptom of a more systematic disease.You have told me you are extremely constipated (obviously), have a salty taste in your mouth, and are very weak.

How's your urine output? Perhaps there is something going on in your kidneys that is causing you to be extremely dehydrated, thus causing the constipation. This would also account for some of your other symptoms.

Another cause of serious constipation (though I've never heard of it to your extent) is hypothyroidism. This would make you weak and tired.

There are other problems, such as pancreatitis, heart failure, and various serious issues that should be investigated. My father, for example, was severely constipated just before he was hospitalized for congestive heart failure.

I am surprised your doctor hasn't thought of any of this. After all, I'm just a weirdo who reads about bizarre medical conditions and I thought of this. It sounds like your doctor is a complete moron.

Ass Man expert here. All health and good things begin in poop holder, is that way gays have so much fun. I have been studing asses sinse for over 20 years and still learn new joys. Yes, Martha, humans get worms and lots of ways to kill them; Pin X is a start, raw pumpkin seeds will get some pin worms; black walnut tinture from health food store will kill some. But best way for all these poop tales & tails is to just fast; any kind, hell it could be a lollypop fast, well not really; the key, liquids only, some fruit and veggies after a few days and or oatmeal etc in am's and do this off and on for weeks. Think concentration camps, you will not die from not eating but you can die from eating and pooping;
was Elvis singing, he should have just sang and not when bowling. Senna teas, detox teas,
and lots of colon blows, as my old girl friend said; yes, we when for his and hers colon blows
as a couple but the experience was somewhat marred by woman in YOUR condition who was screaming like someone having a baby, as she exclamed, oh my god I have not gone in weeks.

and you do a poop roto roter or your ass and bod; No food, or almost nude and soak in tub like new born baby in the womb and see yourself
as a large baby that needs the healing powers of water and relaxing, an old playboy might help too; may I recommend old editions, say 20 years old or more; just in case you should not recover from poop blockage you can at least see an extinct species, the nobel beaver as it used to be and room free all over America. bottoms up lol

Dear J.C. -

Wow. I too, like all of the others, am very, VERY concerned. Not just a little bit. I came to this site looking for something completely different and here I am worried that you're about to die. I am NOT JOKING HERE.

You need to listen to what a lot of people are saying - GET PROFESSIONAL MEDICAL HELP. By PROFEESIONAL I mean, ACTUAL REAL DR'S - that damned ER you went to and that DR you have is CRAP, which from having a sister who lived in Brooklyn is norm in NYcity areas - and your DR is awful. I'm glad you're seeing a new one.

Also, PLEASE DISREGARD what a lot of people are saying on this site as well. JC, I know you are desperate for anything to help, but PLEASE, *PLEASE* *DO* *NOT* ATTEMPT ANY OF THE SUGGESTIONS ANYONE'S GIVEN YOU - In ALL Seriousness, you are FAR too ill for any of them. Perhaps if you had simple bowel issues they would work, but you DO NOT. Trying any one of them could easily kill you.

It appears to me (and I do not claim to have any sort of medical expertiese whatsoever, only an associate's degree in medical science) that you have a severe case of human roundworm infection and/or a severe intestinal blockage. The overuse of Fleet's has caused a serious electrolyte imbalance and you are seriously dehyrated. Yes, water will help, but Gatorade or Pedialyte would be better - if you can get neither mix a little fruit juice with water and slowly drink that. Don't gorge yourself on fluids either. The salty taste in your mouth is a serious symptom that you shouldn't ignore.

You need to go to your new Dr's office and sit in the office and refuse to leave until they see you and take you seriously. Tell them every single thing - write everything down as it happens so you don't need to worry about remembering it all - You need to be admitted to a hospital - You need an upper and lower G.I. and barium studies done - You need a lot of I.V. fluids and bloodwork done - They can do a "bowel cleanse procedure" under general anesthesia, which I'm sure you'll need - And for the roundworms they can give you antiparasitic drugs - You need medical assistance and observation, Please get it where ever you can!!

J.C., I hope that you are okay and hanging in there. Please go and get the medical assistance you need to survive this - and don't take NO for an answer from ANYONE!! Unfortunatly, with no one to be an advocate for you, you have to be the advocate for yourself. It's OK to be PUSHY and RUDE and to SAY NO when it's your LIFE at stake. Say NO! I won't leave here! Treat me!!! The squeaky wheel gets the grease, you know??

Sincerely,
Chandra

Do not ever be afraid to stick something small and gentle up there to get that really bad one out. I am not kidding.

I was so backed up bleeding profusely, sweating and crying in pain. Enemas could not get through and not enough time for meds to kick in.

I did the most horrific, disgusting thing after 2 hours. I took the handle of a regular tooth brush and broke it up and helped some of it finally come through.

Disgusting, horrific, and there is no way in heck I was dropping several hundred bucks and 12 hours to explain my situation to an ER. Wasn't going to happen.

I am surviving now and have taken all the right meds to get me back on the wagon.

Okay, Jay.... I have heard of a few cases similar to yours. It sound like you have Obstipation. It basically means that you cant go to the bathroom. The main cause is a severe intestinal blockage. Besides the fleets enemas, may I suggest trying large volume enemas.... try to take four quarts at a time if thats possible with your blockage....otherwise, take as much as you can, hold it for ten minutes and then go to the bathroom. In extreme cases, your doc can actually reachup into your rectum and break apart and pull out pieces of feces. It usually requires some sedation as it is very uncomfortable. If you can help it, avoid painkillers, as they will only constipate you more. Also, contrary to what others have said, adding a ton of fiber to your diet at once will just give you major gas.

You need to see someone and soon, if you are having issues with your local emergency dept, try going to a private clinic. They can concentrate more on you and really work with you to try to come up with a solution.

Also, some places will still do house calls if you are seriously to weak to leave your house.

This is my story, only mine gets worse. I also have bleeding, and even manual disimpaction does not work, because the opening inside disappears and not only do enemas not come back out when they go in, but sometimes they won't even go in in the first place. I can't tolerate most of the meds that one would expect to help (but don't) and when I say that doctors call me noncompliant and if I do take them I get sick and the doctors wrinkle their brows, shrug their shoulders and disharge me without care. I also can't tolerate any food anymore except bread made with non-enriched wheat flour, canned pears or peaches, and chicken. After years of this I recently developed a lump that appears in my vagina after I manage to poop, which is less than once a week and I need manual help and loads of stool softeners. The lump is excruciatingly painful and the pain spreads down my legs and into my lower back, and I also gets shooting pains in my head when I have to poop. When I press on the lump, air is released into my bowel and I pass gas, and the lump shrinks for a while but still hurts. I got this way when I was 13 and had to drop out of school I'm 19 and still no answers, and they haven't even given me a barium enema or done defecography, in fact my GI refuses to. I was gonna do the transit marker study but I'm too sick to get to the place where they do the x rays. I can't make it 5 days in a row. I'm sick, can't drive, and family and fiance work. I developed all kinds of deficiencies and haven't reached 5 feet in height, been 4'11 since I was 11 years old. I bleed profusely from my rectum, have lungs too weak to expel all the carbon dioxide (I'm told) and I can't finish a sentence or climb stairs without stopping a couple times for a few breaths. My teeth are broken and rotting because my diet is deficient and I have reflux that used to be manageable but is now intractable. I can't afford dental care either, I can't even work. I have had three colonoscopies, a gastroscopy, MRIs, CTs, barium swallow xray, blood tests out the wazoo and recently manometry. I had mild inflammation near the rectum which did not respond to NSAIDs. The manometry results were supposed to be given to me months ago but my doctor doesn't call me back and now I can't get a hold of him at all because he went on vacation. I can't get a new one because the waiting list is an absolute minimum of six months and I'm moving out of province, and the wait list is minimum 8 months there. That's not all of it, either, it's just some of the worse bits.

You said you have some type of worms... if they're really worms, try Olive Leaf Extract (oleuropin). It kills parasites along with bad bacteria and viruses. They could also be long mucus strands of candida. In that case, use... Olive Leaf Extract. It also kills candida fungi.

In addition, helpful probiotics (Garden of Life), extra acidophilus on top of them, cut out homogenized milk, and follow an anti-candida diet.

Lord knows if that will help your situation, but those are the alternative health poo basics. And of course they take at least several weeks to change your body's internal climate -- not like laxatives or anything. Have you checked your body's pH? If your pH is off, try drinking /raw/ apple cider vinegar in hot water with a little raw honey. You have to go to health food stores to buy them raw. The apple vinegar should look thicker with stuff floating in it, and the honey should be hard (as natural honey is). This also would take a period of time to help regulate pH and lubricate the organs.

Have you seen a D.O. or holistic doctor? Tried acupuncture or anything else?

Could this be a psychological problem? My father-in-law is a colon rectal surgeon. He says some types of people (such as followers of certain religions) tend to have more bowel problems because they actually have a lot of guilt tied up in their poo, and it's hard for their body to let it go.

Could heavy metal poisoning lead to this somehow? Please go to a D.O. and get tested for food allergies, heavy metal poisoning, candida, pH, parasites, and whatever else they suggest. Then you can know for sure if any of the above are hurting you.

Peace.

Try looking up a colonics expert (ask if they are certified). It costs between $45-75, takes about 30 minutes. You lie on your back on a table, insert a nozzle provided into your rectum, the tech comes in to turn on machine and leaves. They give you a bell to press if you run into trouble. The machine that is used actually pumps the increasingly heated water into your colon in waves mimicking peristalsis. There's a large cache-basin beneath your hips to catch the fluid mixture and gas one expels around the nozzle. The basin funnels down into a closed tubular system to be whisked away into the sewer like a toilet. As the water reaches higher and higher areas of your large intestine an uncomfortable feeling arises and they can slow or stop flow of water while you rest. When time's up, you take out the nozzle, expel more water mixture, get up and run to bathroom and sit a long time to expel the remainder. You may want to take a small pkg of baby wipes with you to freshen up. You leave there with an empty colon, and working peristalsis, even if you didn't have it before. What a mental and colon relief. Some people have this done bi-weekly or once a month to prevent horrific constipation or just as a health cleanse because one feels so better afterwards. Here's hoping you begin to have a more healthy colon from here on out.
Like they say in nurses training...an enema should be HHH, high..hot..and a hell of a lot.

Colonics are scams. We've been able to survive for millenia without ruining the inside of our digestive tracts. Now we have people telling us we need to clean them out because we have "toxins".
Just eat right and you won't have trouble.

I have problems with constipation. I have found that certain foods make it worse: cheese, milk, jello, caramel, syrup and anything syrupy. Not drinking enough water will constipate me. Foods that seem to help are greens, okra, peanut butter and jelly mixed together, grits (you can tell I live in the south right) grape juice and bran cereal taken together (you can have a little milk in the cereal), drinking lots of water. Water seems to be the most important thing, at least 1/2 cup every hour or 1 cup ever 2 hours for 12 hrs. a day. If you are seriously dehydrated, the water in the enema will be absorbed by the intestines because it is so thirsty therefore making it of no use as an enema.

You have to be careful not to dehydrate yourself with repeated enemas. What you are probably experiencing is an electrolyte imbalance from enema overuse.

Dear Anonymous, What are % years? I am always interested in new language usages.

How long a minute is depends on what side of the bathroom door you're on!

Having same issue. Docs put me on laxatives didn't work. Peglight and poco salex won't come out. Enema only goes in after a mass pops up into intestines or feels like it then enema gets stuck. Currently in hospital nurse attempted fleet enema took her 8 mins to get in till she said oh something must have moved it's now going in. No urge to push no matter how long I wait. I go to toilet bear down as hard as I can only a trickle of enema comes out clear but X-ray and CT shows massive amounts of stool in large and small bowel. I have not had a regular bowel movement for 4 months only if I make stool pure liquid. Weakness sweats malnutrition lightheaded. She thinks a very large mass of almost hard as cement stool won't dissolve moves up when enema goes in then drops back down and nothing comes out. This could be from being compacted at one point and it the compacted mass moved up to large bowel. I'm full of colonoscopy cleanse liquid (Peglight) and I feel the big hard mass move around me. This would need surgical removal as it has not dissolved over 4 months of sitting in liquids. You don't necessarily need a colostomy it could simply be what I'm going through. This at times causes intense 9/10 pain only helped by morphine and dilaudid or other powerful opioids. Have an X-ray ct MRI barium enema. You can't have a colonoscopy if you can't clean out as I can't as one was attempted and caused 10/10 screaming pain with 2 times the sedative and 2 times the fentanyl injection for exam. Don't think the worst about a bag it could simply be like mine and need surgical intervention.

Best of luck!!

I'd also like to add you may have been compacted and dislodged it up into you with your enema use. I believe a medical student pushed my compacted stool up into me with small scope without doing X-ray 1st as I asked him to. It was rectal pain only till he did this now abdominal pain since then that gets very intense.

Fleet enemas are toxic. Only an idiot would use them.
