How will this NG tube laxative procedure work?

Hi! I may have a procedure where an NG tube(I’m assuming) will be put into my nose and down into my stomach. This will be to help with constipation, so I think they’ll put laxatives in the tube. My questions are: will this hurt? Will I have to be awake? Will the doctors watch me use the bathroom in the room or will I get privacy in a bathroom?(main question) and how long will I have to wear the tube? Also, what if this procedure doesn’t work? I do cleanses and still have Severe constipation after, I also have acid reflux, nausea everyday, stomach pain, uti symptoms without a uti, a hernia, and just a general feeling of weakness/sickness everyday. What would be the next step?
