Yesterday the qufora nurse came round to show me how to use my home colonic irrigation kit, its a short thin plastic tube, detachable lubricated head which fixes one end and the other a lightbulb shaped sized plastic container if you like, which you fill with lukewarm water from your bathroom basin sit on loo and insert lubricated end, you dip it in the water to activate the lubricate sollution, then you gently squeeze the pump twice and fill lower colon with the water, that circulates and is said to improve bowel function.
I tried it out myself for the first time this morning, its to be used daily and my verdict so far is I was still having to digitally assist, but only went twice today, that morning actually, but I have with my prolapse and bowel related issues, well I usually open my bowels up to 15-20 times a day and this has been going on for six years, despite corrective surgery, which didn't work, and the medics drawing a blank as to what to do with me and my frightful straining, frequency and digitating scenario.
Anyway, there must be some improvement as i have only gone twice all day long, and normally in the evenings particularly after I eat my tea although I can need the loo quite independently of food intake, that's partly what's so annoying, most of this is(!!) but I will let all know after a week of using, its to be used daily and continuously as they have filled in the paperwork and got me on their books and the Quofora nurse simply drops the kit round to you every two weeks. You throw the heads away, dispose so its quite hygenic.
I really feel this may help me long term as I've also had a lovely warm, settled calm sensation in the bowel since using it this morning and that's unheard of for me, really if you suffer with any similar bowel flow issues or IBS etc I'd say it was worth a try but will write a follow up on this post after a week has elapsed of using it, best wishes, Fiona
