feel enema water in thighs and down to knees?

User Profile
Hi everyone,
I did an enema earlier this evening (the water bottle as they call it)...the kit from walmart. As I released the clamp to allow water into my colon I felt the water rushing into my leg, from my thigh down to my knees and other places too. On the inside though as if it was in my tissue and not externally. What does this mean? Do I have some kind of tear in my colon allowing this to happen? I also felt really nauseated and like I was gonna pass out so I had to stop after a few times. Whatever temperature the water was, it felt the same in my thighs etc. Really freaked out and worried. Can anyone offer any suggestions as to what could cause this? Thank you!!

I think you did not succeeded in allowing the water to enter completely into your colon. A part of it has leaked out and you felt it running into your thighs.

If your constipation problems won't be resolved with 1 enema; you can repeat with another one by tomorrow. This time make sure to get a good position not allowing water leaking.

Hope it helped!
