How We're Keeping You Safe | What Patients & Families Need to Know
An enema pushes fluid into the rectum to clear out stool or waste matter with it when it exits the lower bowel.
Have your child sit on the toilet or potty chair to let go of the solution. Check what type of bowel movement he had (hard, formed or runny) and the amount of solution that comes out.
Most of the enema solution should come out.
