    CO2 Suppository

    A nurse at Tampa General recommends that I use a CO2 suppository because of lower motor neuron bowel problems. Was wondering if anyone had any experience with this type of suppository. Thanks.

    You could certainly try the CeoTwo suppository, although I have never had much success with them. We have about 4 patients who use them right now out of over 700 outpatients. Be sure to use no lubricant (dip in water prior to insertion only).
