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,

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?

i have seen a regular dr and a surgeon and all they push is laxatives i have yet to find one that works i used lactulose , dulcolax , fleet enemas , senekot to no avail im near ready to xplode here at wits end i exercise walk miles you name it still nothing
i should see a gastro but my gp wouldnt even give me a requisition for a food sensitivity test
oh and this is a good one i said to my g.p i feel like im being poisoned he replied you are . and if it does you in who knows was his reply nice doc huh

hello matt thanks for your concern tried all those products worked a little nothing amazing though , my doc had me drinking litres of go lytley and sodium phosphate enemas 2 back 2 back with little to no results

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.
