Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take for the bowel to empty?

Bowel emptying times can vary depending on your reasons for using irrigation and the type of irrigation product used. It can take slightly longer when you first start irrigation until you get used to using the system and establish a bowel routine.

Qufora® IrriSedo Mini system uses a small volume of water and can have more rapid results. The Qufora® IrriSedo Cone, Balloon, Klick, and Bed systems use larger volumes of water and can increase the time up to 30 minutes and occasionally longer dependent on your symptoms. Most of this time is waiting for the bowel to empty not actually doing the procedure. Once you have established a routine the time may decrease. Your healthcare professional should discuss this with you on your initial assessment.
