Well, I had my Entrocylsis scan on Friday. Got through the prep great and they got a vein using ultrasound so I didn't have to get stuck 20x...i get dehydrated easily. Well..they get the tube down my nose and into my stomach ok...uncomfortable but ok. Then they started pumping water in...oh man...it hurt. I got lots of pain that turned to nausea and boom...up chucked everything including the tube. I said...I'M DONE! no more! Well..they talked me into a big dose of Phenergan (nausea med) on top of the valium type stuff. They had to start all over. It still hurt but I was so doped up, I didn't care. Afterwards, I was shooting out both ends like a fountain in the bathroom at the hospital for like a half hour. It was the worse test I've ever had!!! I had this done like 5 years ago and had no problems at all. Does this mean my CD is worse? I haven't gotten the results yet. I guess we'll just wait and see.

Has this bad experience happened to anyone else??

Jeny, I have never had this test but I will remember the name so I never do. Sorry you had so much trouble . Hope the test results come back good for you though..

I've had this test twice as well.  The first time was easier than the first, but I think it had more to do with the procedure it self and not so much my CD.  The first time I was sedated when they put the tube down and I didn't really wake up until the very end of the test.  Barely made it to the bathroom before all of the liquid they put in needed to come out.  The second time I was sedated but woke up much earlier in the test.  I was hurting, trying not to start pooping all the liquid out and shaking.  The second time they put me in the CT scan machine while I was still holding in the fluid/contrast so it prolonged my agony.  By the time the test was completely finished I was totally awake.  I almost didn't make it to the bathroom!  It was probably the worst test I've had during my experience with having crohn's disease.  The next time my GI recommends it, she is going to hear a big fat NO!!!
