I had a 400 mile day.
That's 400 miles of driving. Not the longest mileage day I have ever driven (1,130 miles in a single day to Des Moines, IA). But still a lot of miles, plus the day of field work. One of the things about this day was the road food on a tight schedule and when I finally got home late in the evening, I could tell that it wasn't a great eating day.
Even though my digestive system seemed quite normal when I left in the morning, the day's eats had me feeling a bit bloated. I turned on the Nationals-Cardinals baseball game (already in the 4th inning), stripped out of my clothes and decided to do something about the bloated feeling before taking a shower. I selected my black 4-liter bag and paired it with my clear silicone DBC nozzle equipped with a check valve. I filled bag with 500 ml of warm water and purged the air from the hose. With a bit of lubricant on the tip, I slipped the nozzle in and worked it all the way into my rectum. I used the muscle contractions to draw the nozzle into place as I inflated it slowly. After about 8 squeezes of the bulb, the nozzle was no longer sliding inside me and I inflated the outer balloon to draw the balloon tight and provide a good seal. With the nozzle and hose hanging out of me, I was ready to finish filling the bag.
I considered whether this should be a warm water enema, a baking soda enema, or a soapy one. I thought a peppermint soap enema might be nice and I added the peppermint soap as I filled the bag to the final volume of 3-liters. Wanted to leave enough room in my colon for the solution to churn and turn as the contractions would inevitably cum. There would be no opportunity for the solution to backflow with the contractions since the check valve was installed. I opened the valve while standing and allowed the solution to flow in (slowly). It took a few minutes to work its way into my descending colon as the muscles churned and turned to relieve the liquid pressure that was building from below. Occasionally I would get down on my knees to increase the pressure and flow into me but I finally got the bag into me. Getting that last 500 ml in was quite a challenge because the contractions were getting stronger. The balloon held and I didn't have to inflate it any further.
Was I full???? Absolutely!!! And the challenge was going to be holding it in as long as I could. I managed to hold the balloon in while standing as the contractions got more intense. No leakage with each contraction as I was tightly sealed. I also knew that the soap was doing its thing in softening and dissolving the contents of my colon with each strong churning contraction. No sensation with the peppermint soap inside me. I would occasionally get down on me knees with my head down on the floor to give a different angle to my colon for the enema solution to flow within me with each contraction and relaxation of the muscles. After about 20 minutes of this, I was afraid I was finally going to push the inflated balloon out with a "blowout." I probably could have held out a little longer had I been laying down or inflated the balloon a little further , but 20 minutes were enough.
As soon as I sat on the toilet and began to deflate the inner balloon, the contraction pushed the balloon out of me. It was a pleasant combination of release of pressure, the softened contents flowing through my colon and the "cool burn" of the peppermint. It was a fairly complete emptying and I decided not to rinse the soap out. After emptying out, I enjoyed the residual coolness of the peppermint soap and went back to watching the ball game feeling well cleaned out. Drifted off to sleep after the game was over and slept well.
I probably should have conducted a rinse as there was a fair amount of mucous shedding through yesterday, I followed up last night with a nice slow baking soda enema. It seems like there was still a fair amount of soap to rinse out based upon the soap bubbles that formed upon expulsion. It was generating a fair amount of gas. After last night's rinse, my colon settled down.
