SBFT = Small Bowel Follow Thru. Very easy test, you swallow two cups of Barium. They wait about
15 min. and then take xrays every 15 to 30 min (I forget) until the barium passes thru your intestinal tract. The test is looking for narrowing or strictures in your intestines.
If you have one (stricture), it depends on how bad it is. If it is narrowed becuz of inflammation they will put you on meds to get the inflammation under control. If it is from scar tissue, no meds will help and usually if its bad enough they will do surgery. But sometimes they are able to go in with a c-scope and stretch it open for you. Hope that helps. Keep us posted on what your doc says.
