When I was in the hospital this last December they did a small bowel follow through which shows contrast moving through the intestines on an xray. The contrast went from my mouth to my stoma in about
45 minutes. However, the contrast would not come out of my stoma. It took about
5-7 hours for the contrast to pass. If this test is an indicator of my transit, doesn't that mean that these big 'ole potassium pills are sitting at my stoma site? I took 6 of them. The Drs said that they are not sure why the stuff does not just come out my stoma and why it backs up in that area....possibily stress related is their theory. They believe I hold my stress in my gut and keep my tummy tightened all the time so much so that I do not know how to relax the muscles. Anyway, I placed a call to my Dr and hopefully they will call me with some information regarding liquid potassium.
