The first barium enemas I had were single contrast, just filled, got to release and had one or two empty pictures taken. I really enjoyed them. The last one was a double contrast, they took the bag down and filled me with air, I did not enjoy it.
My first BE was when I was about 10, I had been given enemas regularly, and the girl from across the street and I had "acquired" her brother's toy fire truck, that we hitched to a neighbor's garden hose and gave each other enemas.
As a result our moms noticed neither of us had a BM for several days, and assuming we were constipated gave us enemas that produced little in the way of results.
Being that both our moms were overly concerned about our bowels we were taken to,a doctor, also a big believer in enemas. He couldn't find anything wrong, but as a precaution prescribed Barium Enemas.
In those days the prep was enemas until clear at night and a repeat in the morning. Both Janet and I loved our enemas, and we had appointments at the same time, in fact the morning prep enemas were given at Janet's house, and her mom drove us to the doctor's office. He had a clinic and did the x-rays himself.
To our very pleasant surprise, his nurse gave us one more enema to be sure we were ready.
This was prior to disposables so the barium solution was in a large can, looked a lot bigger than the bags we were used to. I know I was filled to bursting, with barium on, off, picture take, over and over. Then to the toilet to let it go. I don't think any retention nozzle was used, and while I was expelling Janet was being x-rayed. I couldn't see anything, but I was in the next room and I could hear it all.
We both were told we were good patients, I wonder it the doctor had any idea how much we enjoyed it?
Our mothers were told to give us enemas at bed time if we hadn't gone on our own, so when we had some play time later that afternoon, we were excited about more enemas. And when we got them we passed a lot of white water, so it was repeated in the morning.
The only thing the doctor found was we had enlarged colons, but he was pleased at the amount of barium we had taken. It was also decided, just to be sure, that the barium enemas should be repeated in a year. I know we were not unhappy about that.
Sure enough, the next year we were scheduled again. We talked about it, and we both agreed the barium was easy to hold, so when we expelled we tried to hold some back. I know by the time we got home I was kind of regretting it, as I nearly soiled myself on the ride home.
Just like the previous year, enemas were prescribed at bedtime. But in the meantime we snuck off and watched each other squirt some solution. I thought I held back quite a bit, but it seemed like Janet held most of hers, which was already forming some soft white poop.
I never got to have another barium enema with Janet, we moved away, and our new doctor was not as enema centric as the previous one, but that didn't stop the enemas, although once my mother got a job the ones she gave me were cut back considerably, but being home alone I more than made up for it.
As a teen I did wind up with "spastic colon" and got another barium enema, which was preceded by a rigid sigmoidoscopy, which I thoroughly enjoyed. I was given the choice of prep with a laxative or enemas, I'm sure you know what I chose. This time it was a clear bag, so I could watch it all go in. And it was followed by more x-rays after I expelled. No enemas prescribed for that evening, and the next day I pooped several white turds. I was filled very full, loved the feeling of it, and having to hold for several positions after being filled.
The next ones I had were as a young adult, and while laxative prep was prescribed I optioned of enemas. The second was almost a repeat of the first, and quite enjoyable, but the one following that was air contrast, which I hated.
I had two occasions to be given barium enemas by chiropractors, neither one required any prep. One was a 1500cc bucket, about half full. It was noted it really did completely fill me, so after a series of colonics the follow up was a nearly full bucket, but in each case it was a fill and just one X-Ray.
The last chiropractic X-Ray was at a clinic near Detroit. In this case it was a full barium bag, a retention nozzle and bending over the x-ray table. The nurse probably ran in about a quart, shot the x-ray and asked me to hold the position while she checked the film.
Once she was out of the room a reached back and released the clamp, and let the rest of the 2+ quarts run in. When she got back and saw the empty bag she thought it was her fault and was very apologetic. I told her not to worry, I could easily hold that much solution. Now, as I was scheduled for a colonic she said I could go to toilet to let the barium out. So, even though I could easily have gone, I told her I didn't have to, why didn't she just start the colonic and drain me that way.
During the process I confessed my love of enemas, and convinced her to do some mixed sessions, she even gave me some 2500cc bags to use at home, since I told her I often had to refill my bag. She was also keen on introducing me to other clients into enemas.
Unfortunately I got a real scare at the clinic, it had an old Coombs machine and they didn't use disposables. One time she started a colonic, and it wouldn't drain. The outflow was blocked from the previous client, and in the process of trying to get things sorted out I saw feces from the previous client coming back up the tube. That was my last visit, everyplace I have been since uses disposables.
