Patient :Are there any chances of air embolism by using bidet shower. I am asking this question as I have heard that if there is forceful entry of water with pressure in any lower orfices like vagina/anus it can lead to air/gas embolism. I have recently used bidet shower and I noticed that I used it(water pressure being high) during defecation and felt a sudden sharp pain in my anus.
Please guide me!
