I have only had this test done once, and that is enough for a lifetime. I could not stand the horrible, painful, I-have-to-go-to-the-bathroom-RIGHT-NOW-but-can't feeling...! I tried to explain it to my husband--I always had pain/horrible feelings right before I went poo due to my Crohn's....this test was like taking that feeling and drawing it out for 45 minutes straight!!! And making you roll around on a hard table while you felt like that!
The one nurse I had was so sweet, she made it a little better...oh and Cecilia, the same thing happened to me twice and I was covered in barium...yuck :(
Hopefully that is the last Barium test you will need, Bella!
