My First Enema Was in the Hospital
I was 15 yrs old in the hospital for minor surgery, this was 1965. At the end of visiting hours the nurses would prep for the next day. After the visitors left, I was sitting on the toilet and there was a knock at the door.
It was the nurse and she said that she had 2 suppositories for me to take.
I just finished going and thought I don't need the suppositories. I finished in the bathroom and walked over to the bed and told the nurse, that I just went and did not need the suppositories.
She explained that the doctor wanted me cleaned out so I would not have to go on the way to surgery, there was a little cup with 2 suppositories sitting on the cart.
She asked me if I had ever had been given suppositories? I said no, and she said just lay face down and it would only take a second to put them in. I then told her again that I just went and didn't need them.
She then asked, you're not going to take the suppositories? And I told her that I just went and didn't have to.
She then said put on the hospital gown that I would be going to surgery in, which I did, and she said she would be back.
I was sitting in bed watching 3 channel black and white TV and about 20 minutes later she came back in the room pushing a cart with a towel over the contents.
She then said that on second thought she thought I needed an enema.
When everything was said and done, I went to the toilet, and when I got back I got suppositories to prep me for surgery.
That was almost 45 years ago, and I think enemas are a great way to improve our health and keep our bodies functioning properly.
