If you have hemorrhoids, cold water hitting them will be painful. The bottles I use are purchased on Amazon and they have helped me deal with this pain-in-the-ass issue.

I'm one month short of 9 years since my resection and still regularly have bouts of clustering. I have tried everything under the sun but guess that after nine years, it is what it is!
Sadysue patting is not an option for cleaning for me ( shit everywhere lol)
If I don't clean 110% it burns because it's usually already bleeding ,,
Thanks Fir the link , will definitely be ordering them
I'll have to use the disabled toilet to fill it a ignore the stares of disapproval
I carry a medical kit labeled CANCER KIT. It has 6 bottles so I can use a regular stall and have enough water. It also contains a brick of Kirkland wipes and this combination has taken care of the worst of my problems. It's a bit heavy to carry around though.
If someone wants to know why I'm using a disabled something or other, I just show them the kit.
