Hello my name is***** am a board-certified physician with over 15 years of clinical experience and I am happy to help you. Yes, it sounds like you still may be constipated, but even after 20 minutes you may still see some beneficial effects of your recent enema later on in terms of helping you pass the stool. Yes, I think you should continue laxatives by mouth but please do not use another enema for at least 24 hours. Can I help you with anything else?

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
