After dealing with Crohn's for 23 years, I know this sounds silly. . . but I am traumatized by the fact that I have to do an upper GI/small bowl follow through on Friday. Haven't done one in 10 years. When I was a kid, I had a ton of them and always gagged or choked--even threw it up. I'm having nightmares. B/c of the drink, I've never been able to drink out of a big straw or drink anything strawberry and creamy.
Anyone out there who can tell me if the barium drink has improved/changed at all?
My crohn's is going nuts. Gotta do the upper GI and colonscopy fast to get on the humira. Sad b/c my body turned against the 6mp in November and the disease is back with a vengeance after 6 pretty good years.
