I am eating beans but not a lot, only on portion
anyway I think it is a very good thing if you get rid of mucus and other stuff that accumulated over several months in your colon. I read that a water enema a week was advised to get the colon used to adsorbe water again before reversal.
The problem with the beans was in that they filled up the bag with gas which forced the waste into the large intestines. I hadn't passed gas in a long time (except through the bag), so it was a feeling that I hadn't had since last year. The sitting on the toilet stuff actually has me quite tired out today and reluctant to go out of the house. But we need to do grocery shopping and we did have plans to do some traveling. One thing that bothered me was my limited ability to prevent stuff from coming out.
I have a pad on right now and that should hold things up reasonably well. The amounts coming out aren't large so the pad should work if there's a bathroom nearby.
This stuff reminds me of the chemo/radiation days.
