When I started the daily enema, it was a few weeks before a trip...I was sure it would be ruined as I would be in the bathroom 20 - 30 times a day. 2 weeks into perfecting the enema routine, I can say my trip went off without a hitch. 30 minutes once a day and I could do whatever I wanted, eat whatever I wanted....flights - no problem! If you had told me that was going to happen just 1 month before we left I would never have believed you. I have a coworker that suffers from horrible constipation. She did a purge as told by the ER doc and got some relief,,,but not total. She is doing an enema every couple of days and feels better then she has in years. She was horrified at first, but after just doing it a few times she is meh...no biggie...easy peasy :lol:

Try all your options...see what works best for you. If you want to talk enema....just let me know...
