well saw my GI a bit ago and told him something wasn't right inside.  ordered another CT. did that today. as usual i had only to drink about 2/3 of a bottle of contrast compared to 2 or 3 for "normal " people.. that was good. new IV contrast today. higher concentration of "stuff" that makes it show up. i was the first at my location! woohoo!   they waited for me cause i have had so many that they new if i could not tell the differance , nobody else would.. just a bit more of a flushed feeling, but no having to go pee feeling! yea!  but all in all no differant. 
 anyhow have had this feeling of late, that something aint right. lots more noise, air and pressure in there.  with some food particles staying around way longer than normal, but letting everything else go by for a couple days.  if ya know what i mean.  so we are thinking either a blind alley or a pouch if you will, or a fistula maybe starting and  catches the flow and spits it back out a couple days later?   
     we sahll see. will update when i hear the news...  hey maybe this would solve the fever problem?  na, couldnt be that lucky.. tongue

GOOD LUCK, Randy!!! You just may be on the right track about those fevers. Not that a fistula would be good news, but at least an answer. (((hugs)))

Randy, I've had food hide, then reappear, I've often wondered where it went. My fevers are only in the 100-101 area though!

Be sure to let us know the outcome. Other than that, how're you feeling?

Randy....I am hoping this solves those fevers. I did snicker when you mentioned the "have to pee feeling". Boy did I panic when that happened at mine---no one prepared me for that.
So what flavor was the junk you had to drink. I've had 2 CTs and can no longer stand the black licorice smell or the "pretend lemonade" taste without getting the dry heaves.
Dx'd '90 (emergency rupture), symptoms ignored long before that, '03 fistulas and bad flagyl reactions, B12 weekly, Pentasa [until I surrender to the bigger meds]
