A fistulagram is basically an angiogram of your fistula(s) and associated blood vessels. A contrast dye is injected into these structures to enhance the X-ray images, and then X-rays are taken. (This injection shouldn't hurt any more than the usual cannulation.) The whole thing takes a couple hours. You will probably be sedated, so you need to have someone take you home.
The reason you have to go earlier is because the dr will go through the paperwork, and explain the procedure with you, set up the IV, your bloods will probably be taken as well good luck i'm sure you will be fine Bev x
