2. Using your Qufora

How long does it take for the bowel to empty?

Rectal irrigation times can vary depending on your symptoms and what product you use. Information can be found on each product on the website. It can take slightly longer when you first start irrigation until you get used to using the system and establish a bowel regime. Overall, the Qufora IrriSedo Mini system uses a small volume of water and can have more rapid results. The Qufora IrriSedo cone, balloon and bed uses larger volumes of water can increase the time up to 30 minutes and occasionally longer dependent on your symptoms. Most of this time is actually waiting for the bowel to empty not actually doing the procedure. Your healthcare professional will discuss this with you on your initial assessment
