It won't cause a hole in the intestine, if that happened you would fall quite ill within 1-2 hours from sepsis of the intestines and stomach.

However, your constipation does have to be addressed.

What things besides enema are you using right now?

I went to a Gastroenterologist Tue.3rd. Colonoscopy coming up in a couple of weeks. Thanks.

Great, that should rule anything serious out.

Do you have any specific questions for me otherwise?
