I was expecting to feel the same relief everyone else described when they used an enema, but even after two attempts I still not feel great. The first time I used more than 3/4 of the bag. It took me a while to do it because for some reason the water wasn't coming out, probably because the tip was being covered by some wall in my rectum. Anyways, immediately when I stood up I felt a lot of cramping and went straight to the toilet even though I knew I was supposed to hold it in for 15 minutes. I spent about half an hour on the toilet and I got out a decent amount of stool but not as much as I was expecting. So, like most of your informed me to do so, I tried a second attempt about an hour later. I used about the same amount and held it for 15 minutes. When I sat on the toilet all I got rid of was water and some bits of stool. Later in the day, I drank some soda which I think might have triggered my stomach and I went to the bathroom again. This time I got rid of a good amount of stool. But after all this I still didn't feel fantastic like the way you guys described it, and trust me I know what it's supposed to feel like (Since I've had IBS, I've only felt relief once in January when I used a suppository. That was the only time it worked.). Not sure what to do now.
