I usually have trouble making it home before the D starts. So you are not alone. Sometimes it takes awhile for the Barium to move through me to where they want it for the pictures, but once it gets there, oh boy, watch out! I usually put some old towels in the car to sit on just in case.
And as far as not feeling well, barium and I don't get along. I am sick for several days after any barium test. It has even put me in the hospital a couple of times when I was really sick to begin with. So you are not alone there either.
Just be glad its the weekend and you can take it easy. Your body has been through enough, just treat yourself kindly today and tomorrow. Drink lots of fluids, rest, take a nice long tubby time, maybe use a heating pad and read a guily pleasure book or trashy magazine. Just generally play hooky from life this weekend! Hope you feel better soon and that they got the test results they needed so that you don't have to have anymore nasty barium in the near future!
