When photographer Anthony Cullen heard the clank of glass on porcelain, he didn't need to examine the contents of the toilet bowl between his legs. He instinctively knew he had just passed the marble he had swallowed as a five-year-old; the small coloured sphere - "I think it was a bluey" - had lodged in his colon for 22 years. His nonchalance was understandable.
An enema , also known as a clyster , is an injection of fluid into the lower bowel by way of the rectum. In standard medicine, the most frequent uses of enemas are to relieve constipation and for bowel cleansing before a medical examination or procedure;  also, they are employed as a lower gastrointestinal series also called a barium enema ,  to check diarrhea,  as a vehicle for the administration of food, water or medicine, as a stimulant to the general system, as a local application and, more rarely, as a means of reducing temperature,  as treatment for encopresis , and as a form of rehydration therapy proctoclysis in patients for whom intravenous therapy is not applicable. In other contexts, enemas are used by some alternative health therapies, used for enjoyment, chiefly as part of sexual activities, but also in sadomasochism, as well as simply for pleasure, used to intoxicate with alcohol, used to administer drugs for both recreational and religious reasons, and used for punishment. As bowel stimulants, enemas are employed for the same purposes as orally administered laxatives : To relieve constipation ; To treat fecal impaction ; To empty the colon prior to a medical procedure such as a colonoscopy. A large volume of enema  can be given to cleanse as much of the colon as possible of feces. Such enemas' mechanism consists of the volume of the liquid causing rapid expansion of the intestinal tract in conjunction with, in the case of certain solutions, irritation of the intestinal mucosa , resulting in powerful peristalsis and a feeling of extreme fecal urgency. The enema is retained until there is a tremendous, uncontrollable [ citation needed ] urge to defecate, at which time the recipient may expel any fecal matter loosened by the instilled solution together with the solution itself. Plain water can be used, simply functioning mechanically to expand the colon, thus prompting evacuation. Castile soap is commonly added because its irritation of the colon's lining increases the urgency to defecate.
His dad and siblings are also doctors, hence his mom is quite use to the idea of being alone and independent. For whatever reason, none of them ever seemed that interested in me I freely admit this could have been cluelessness on my partand so never turned serious. I can't take it. Interreligious marriages are not a new thing.
