    Can you post some examples of a "dig Stimmer" device?

    Suppositories just moves stool from the descending and sigmoid colon into the rectal vault so that they can be evacuated.

    The two most popular ones. Separate suppository inserter if that is a problem too:

    If you search Amazon for Colonic Cleanse Kit , you will find many metal and silicone devices that you can use on a shower shaft that provide a similar function. At a significant lower cost. These medical ones are pricey and look rather fragile. And of course there are other opening devices if you want to explore the adult pages. Sorry if this offends some but the medical providers charge way too much for their stuff.

    Sorry I forgot to reply many days ago when you asked. I go from the side.

    I suggest you try from the side. Also the cushion can be a big factor. I need to settle in to a cushion on my Raz shower chair because i too have short arms and relaltivily short fingers. By having a cushion that lets you settle in and I also opened up the opening on the right side just a bit I can just barely reach what i need too. i could not do kit at all from the front opening type cushion. hope that helps.
