Well I had my CT Enterography yesterday. This test is supposed to be able to view your small bowel better than a SBFT. What a adventure!!!
I had to drink 3 bottles of this sweet tasting stuff. Wasn't that bad, at least in comparison to that yucky barium. I managed to get 2 1/2 bottles down, then I had to drink 8 ounces of water. I must have pee'd 3-4 times before I even had the Catscan, thats alot of liquid. Surprised I didn't puke.
The adventure part came when they had to start my IV. I have such small crooked veins that it took them 4 (pokes) times before they got it in. Then when they put the contrast thru the IV, YOWEE is all I had to say. I had great people there helping me out though, they told me to scream if I wanted to, which of course I did!!!
This test was done to see how things were looking in my small bowel, since I can't do c-scopes anymore. Hopefully he got his answers because I am not looking forward to anymore tests anytime soon:) If it shows any inflammation, I will go back on 6mp. Personally I think everything is okay right now, but we will see.
Just thought I'd share my adventure.
