I just had one last Wednesday and I think it is one of the better tests. Me guy said it could last hours, but I told him I am quick. From drinking the barieum to finished x-rays is about 30 mins for me. I hope that's not bad though. I will get my results tomorrow. THe worst part about the barium in my opinion is the thickness. He gave me barium drinker of the year. I find sipping it worse than gulping it and I find the x-ray fascinating. Good luck. It really isn't that bad. I couldn't eat or drink 8 hours prior to the test. I did walk the halls because that gets the barium through quicker. Let us know how it goes.
