Hello,
I am Dr. Arun and will be helping you today.

You mentioned that you have passed 5 small hard stools. Do you still feel sensation of passing stool but unable to evacuate?

Do you have bloating, gas, stomach pain or fullness?

Customer: replied 6 months ago.
fullness some gas... while waiting i used a fleet enema and i passed a little more ... no where near enough...
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
does fleet work all at once or over time?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 months ago.

At this point of time, I feel, the best result can be by the oil based fleet enema. You need to keep the enema at least for 5 minutes or more, before going to toilet. That should be able to give you a good evacuation.

Please feel free for your follow up questions.

I would be happy to assist you further, if you need any more information.

Thanks for using Just Answer.

will olive oil work or does it matter?
Expert:  Dr. Arun Phophalia replied 6 months ago.

Any oil enema works good. It facilitate the rectum movement by lubrication and stimulation.

It is privilege assisting you.
