The SBFT (small bowel follow through) is good, especially when the scope can't get thru. This is X rays combined with drinking down some contrast solution.

After I had a colonoscopy where the scope could not pass through, I had a CT enterograph immediately after. I had to drink three large cups of I think dilute barium before the scan. It was done immediately because otherwise I would have had to do the "prep" again on a different day.

I had several strictures that I had removed with the resection surgery in Oct of 2007. I had a colonoscopy done and instead of doing the SBFT they performed a test called Enteroclysis. This was about a month before I had the surgery. It's actually not as bad as it might look. They use the NG tube but they give you meds to help. I was are aware of what was going on but really didn't feel it. I could see the Contrast going through my small intestine and saw where it was getting hung up by the strictures.

Good luck to you and hope all goes well.
