Pentasa Enema

Spoke to my specialist today and he wants me to start enemas. It sounds silly but i am a bit nervous about this. I know roughly what it is but was just wondering how other people got on using these?

I tried enemas for about a week (nightly). Pretty easy to do, lie down on the bathroom floor, get it all in, wait a couple minutes then go to bed. Some discomfort holding it in and I never did make it all night but it certainly wasn't horrible. I only stopped because they didn't seem to have much effect for me. Best of luck!
