So, consistent with my previous posting:
It was a session that lasted more than 3 hours last night and this morning. Started at 11:30 finished up and into bed about 3:00 AM.
So, what was different?
First, it was snowing and sleeting. I turned on the outdoor spotlights to watch the ground eventually be covered in the white stuff. My intent was to hang my bag up on the post of my 4-post bed nearest the window, with one of my long nozzles inserted all the way up to the retention ball(s), and stand there, spread eagled in front of the window while I took on the 4.5 liters in my bag. Normally, I have been able to take on this volume while standing. Although I wouldn't have all the lights on the bedroom while taking this in, if you looked carefully, you might notice a backlit figure with his arms up on the window corners, legs spread and ass back. No guarantee that you'd see the translucent bag or the hose going up to the colon tube.
I had a nice bar of glycerine soap that I wanted to use rather than one of castile soaps I might use. As I mixed up the solution by placing the bar of soap in the measuring container I use, the bar more easily dissolved in the flowing water and made for a solution that visibly looked more concentrated than I'd normally make. I also added a bit of J-Lube to the mixture to help the solution even more slippery than with just the soap. My intent was to fill and hold this solution and then, when the time was right, to unhook the bag from the post and walk into the bathroom to pull the nozzle and expel the soapy solution. I then planned to reinsert the nozzle or go with a larger diameter nozzle and rinse with either plain warm water of a bicarbonate solution (again, standing spread eagled in the window). Got the visual? You can look at my images to see the size of colon tubes I like to use.
The reality was very, very different. I can usually insert the CT-75fr tube well into the large intestine even without a pre-cleaning enema. The tube shape and stiffness is typically able to navigate within the colon walls and past any fecal matter within. And the tubes rarely fold over and back onto itself. Not this time. I think there was enough "hard" fecal material held within that the tube couldn't navigate through (and it folded back on itself). Pulling the tube and reinserting, it seemed that I got it further in than at first. "Okay, just go ahead and add some solution to help the tube navigate the full distance," I thought. And then I could carry the bag out into the bedroom.
Nope! Wasn't going to happen. As soon as about a liter was in, I had a near immediate reaction to the soapy solution and the filling in the lower colon. It was a very messy to say the least. The J-Lube helped allow stuff the flow out of me and at least coated the first turns of the colon. I refilled the bag with soapy solution and reinserted the tube. It went in much further and I actually got the retention ball inserted. However, this time I only got two liters in before the pressure was so high that I had to let go. Well, the window idea was going by the wayside. I made up two more liters of soapy/J-Lube solution and poured it in the bag. Attempt number three was much more "successful" in that I was able to take most of the 4.5 liters and I was able to get the solution to flow into the transverse colon and beyond. But the reaction to the soapy solution was pretty quick and lots of solid stuff was coming out.
I expelled as much as I could, feeling much more empty than I started out. I made up another full bag of soapy solution. I knew there was still soapy solution sloshing around in the upper colon so I would just take what I could until I emptied the bag. I switched to a larger diameter tube feeling that much of the sigmoid and descending colon had been emptied, inserted it as far as I felt was comfortable and let the solution fill me. I took about half the bag before it got uncomfortable and I tried to hold it as long as possible. But only a few minutes later, I was back on the toilet letting some of the solution out. I reinserted the smaller diameter tube add injected the last two liters.
I waited a while to allow as much of the soapy solution to be discharged before applying the rinse. Using one of my longest tubes, I inserted and tube as far as possible and then applied a number of rinses (total of 15 liters). After draining as much as I could, I drifted off to sleep listening to the sleet bounce off the windows.
I was really surprised by how fast my colon reacted to the soapy solution and how little I was able to hold compared to my normal experiences.
