Customer Question

Dr Rick did not get back with me from my question yesterday.
I have a lot of medical issues and one bring defecation problems because muscles tighten rather than relax plus I have hemorrhoids (one with a band). My dr said I can use suppositories and enemy's but my nurse is not available to give me an enema (I cannot give myself one because of rods down my whole back). I have not used suppositories much but they do not seem to work. Ducolax worked once. Glycerin twice. I do not eat much because I am always in pain. Anyway, what would be the best suppository to try again. Do both that unmentioned, draw water in to help push it out? This is so chronic that I worry I will not survive all the tests I still have to do. ER does not like to give enemas. They send you home with meds you would use for a colonoscopy. Loss of more weight.
