    Cool dig-stim

    Is there a certain amount of time you should do dig-stim?

    Of course there are a lot of factors and everyone is different but each "stim" should be for a minimum of 1 minute and repeated until nothing comes or most do it at least 3 times if no signs of distention or problems. Past 4 times an enema or other intervention might be necessary.Of course, could be more at times. We sya defnitely no more than 6times.

    The person doing the dig stim doesn't consider me done until after three clean stims, but, as I posted in a new thread, three of the past four time, a little more stool was passed a few hours later, which is not usual for me.

    I also have gas, and none of the anti-gas meds seem to help.
