AN INTRODUCTION TO RECTAL IRRIGATION

Before using the Qufora® IrriSedo products to irrigate, it is advisable that you familiarise yourself with the functionality of the systems by filling it with water and working through the instructions step by step. This way you will know what happens during the actual irrigation.

Always start rectal irrigation on a daily basis. Once irrigation is working, you can try to reduce the frequency if you are comfortable with this and it is appropriate.

Using bowel medication

Your healthcare professional will advise you regarding any medication you normally take to make your bowel work or slow it down. As a general rule you should not stop taking this medication or reduce it unless advised to do so by your healthcare professional. When an irrigation routine has been established it may be possible to reduce or even stop medication.
