I HAD A BARRIUM ENEMA TODAY TO SEE IF IT'S TIME FOR REVERSAL SURGERY.  LET ME JUST TELL YOU THAT I'M GOING TO SLAP THE CRAP OUT OF MY SURGEON THE NEXT TIME I SEE HIM FOR MAKING ME HAVE THAT HORRID HORRID HORRID TEST.  WHOEVER INVENTED THIS TEST HAS A HATRED FOR PEOPLE.  ANYWAY AFTER THE TEST I STARTED BLEEDING AND EVEN NOW A COUPLE OF HOURS LATER I AM STILL BLEEDING FROM THE RECTUM.  HAS ANYONE HAD THIS DONE AND HAD THIS OUTCOME BEFORE.  MY SURGEON SAYS IT'S OKAY.  LET ME KNOW THANKS.

Oh, Bella, I'm so sorry you had to go through that! The first (and last) time I had that done, the balloon popped out and made a huge mess.  smhair  I was mortified, and told my doctor to never put me through that again or I'd feed him to the wolves!  nono  
 
I did not have bleeding after, so I don't know what that's about. Hopefully, it will stop soon.

Bella,

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!

-E

okay, I know it is a nasty test, but try it with 4 fistulas...the barium comes right out and burns the entire time!! My decision for a protocolectomy was easier after that!!
