I see on your profile, sniffer, that you have T-5 through 8 fractures. It doesn't say iwhether you are "complete" or "incomplete". Your summary says that your lower body function is "eroding". I'm T-9 incomplete. In my case, I can't move my lower body, but I can feel a little. I think that small enemas are a good idea. Especially if you are able to use a toilet and get cleaned up afterwards, small enemas are good for you. I don't know specifically about Microlax. I haven't researched "what's in it". Just warm water would be my preference.
Sniffer, because you've had enough function to be able to walk, you may never have had to remove your feces the way a "more paralyzed" person has to do it. I put on a vinyl glove, then lubricate the fingertips with olive oil. Then I reach around and insert my finger in my anus. When my gloved fingertip taps something round and firm, I gently coax it out. And there will be more behind that. I keep removing feces until the little "holding area" is empty. You may have to start doing this for yourself if the suppositories aren't getting the job done. There are also other bowel helps such as Peristeen. I haven't had the opportunity to try those.
A woman hears her husband cussing up a storm From behind the bathroom door. She knocks and asks, 'honey ,what is it?' Her husband emerges from the bathroom and says, 'The doctor prescribed suppositories for this stomach problem I've been having and no matter what I do, I just can't get the sucker up my ass. Even the doctor had to shove the first one in to show me how it was done, and I tell you it took him forever to get it up there, and it hurt!' 'Poor baby,' says the wife. 'You were probably nervous and tense and he probably wasn't very gentle with you. Here, let me give you the suppository, I don't mind.' Still grumbling, the husband bends over. His wife puts her left hand on his shoulder to brace him and with the right hand, quickly and easily slips the suppository up her husbands rear end. The husband lets out a bloodcurdling scream. 'My god' says the wife. 'What happened? Did I hurt you?' 'No!' Cries the man,'but I just remembered that when the doctor did it, he had BOTH his hand on my shoulders
it’s not water soluble, cleanup can be difficult. Olive oil can also permanently stain some sheets or clothes, and some people are allergic to it. When olive oil goes rancid, it creates an unpleasant odor even in its natural state,
There are also a few health concerns to keep in mind. Like any oil, olive oil can break down some materials. You should never use olive oil (or any oil-based product) with latex condoms or silicone sex toys. Olive oil isn’t officially recommended by the FDA for use as a personal care product, and many of the olive oils that you’ll find at your local grocery store contain additives and other ingredients. They’re not formulated for internal use except as foods, so you may be taking risks by using these products.
