A couple gross questions

I'm currently writing something wherein one speaker is referring to the act of using a gloved hand to reach into someone's colon and pull out poop when they are constipated. I could have sworn this was "colostomy," but I looked that up on and that was not it. I tried Google, but the few feeble things I could think of to ask it came up empty.

I have another related question. This one speaker is saying that it is impossible or exceptionally difficult to give someone an enema if they are constipated, and I wanted to check if that was true. I have no idea what to Google on that one.

Thanks in advance for any help, and I hope those of you who were curious were not eating any chocolate at the time you read that. If so, I apologize.

EDIT: Thanks for the answers!
