Hi Dear !! Thanks for your query to HCM.
Read and reviewed your query in context to your health concerns.

Dear, I understood your problem of delivering the tablet via rectal route as the patient is having pharyngeal cancer and not able to swallow.

Insertion of Foley's Cather -and retaining in the rectum by inflating its balloon,would make it convenient to deliver any tablet to be given for bowel movement/
Else you can also Glycerin suppositories also, but seems you have some problem with its insertion and its usefulness.

So in the given scenario, delivery of the tablet you want to give it to your patient-I would suggest You, to crush the tablet and infuse the liquid made from crushed tablet and clamp the catheter for drug effect required in your case.

Dear, I tried to give brief replies to your multiple health issues. If you need more replies, please update more detailed questions.

Hope this reply would help you to resolve your health issues with help of your doctors there.
