experience My suppository
Still a huge amount inside, couldn't push it out, and couldn't bring it back away from the bum hole. I was almost in tears I called the hospital because I just didn't know what to do Just after I hung up the phone with her I think my body was like 'oh crap' and I was finally able to get it out I am so glad to hear you finally got relief!

You may want to, in the future, try making sure things are lubricated in that area, to help ease things along I have also been on a regimen of 2 colace per every 2 days or so since the "incident" to make sure it doesn't happen again, as I am now on iron supplements, which do NOT help things in that area one bit!

I high fived my dad today when I pooped without any problems lol. Sorry, just got to reading this post. I am glad to hear you got some relief! Just a little tidbit for future reference.

R Please answer quickly- suppository questions So, I don't know if any of you read my post either yesterday or the day before about being backed up So I called my doctor.
They called me in a prescription for a suppository. The stool is RIGHT there, when I try to go to the bathroom, it's basically coming out, but it's so hard and wide that my poor little bumhole can't stretch for it to fit out Will it have any effect on the results? I need to know when to expect relief, and how long I should expect to stay home by the toilet?
