hi buddy, I am sorry to hear you are feeling so bad. I get constipated often here it seems.
I dont know if you have tried a Fleet glycerin suppository yet....they are very mild and it works for me here
They are much easier to use than the enema.
Drop me a line here, let me know if this helps.
Talk to you soon buddy,
Matt

Welcome to the gastroenterology community!  I really recommend against using enemas on a daily basis.  Have you tried other laxatives?  Sometimes you need to try different laxatives until you find one that works.  Have you seen a gastroenterologist or just your regular doctor?

First I would recommend finding a different GP.  Then ask for a referral to a gastroenterologist.  I would recommend trying miralax or milk of magnesia or magnesium citrate when it is really bad to see if those help.
