Over the years, I am periodically drawn back to trying the mineral oil enema. It is really nice when really constipated and that large hard stool slides out with ease. Of course that has never happened until the follow up enema. Once, I was on vacation with my wife and in-laws when I tried this using Fleet disposables to clean up after the Fleet mineral oil. The next morning I learned about not trusting a fart as I soiled the shorts and quickly backed from the room.
The most effective with the fewest after effects was recently. I was really constipated so I took a Fleet Mineral Oil Enema and retained it for about 2 hours. After that, I took two 1 quart strong soap suds enemas (Ivory bar). I allowed 30 minutes between the soap suds enemas. After that I took two 2 quart warm water enemas allowing 30 minutes between the end of one and the start of the next. The next morning I took another 1 quart warm water and didn't notice any oily residue. There were no surprises the rest of the day.
Unfortunately, my wife finds enemas disgusting and would not help. She knows I use them. She thinks it is because I am frequently constipated; but, she will not administer any to me. I am left to fantasize about one of you ladies giving me enemas; which, can be a good dream.
