Tomorrow, i'm supposed to have some gastrografin studies done. What can I expect?? I'm hoping they will give me something to help me relax beforehand. I'm really worried. This is in preparation for getting my ileostomy reversed. I talked with the surgeon today, and found out it is definitely an ileostomy. Also, I'm going to use the surgeon I got a second opinion from. I feel more comfortable with him than the one who did my original surgery. Plus he works with the wound care center, that I will be going to post op. I will not go back to the one at the hospital I work at.
 
any suggestions?? thanks!!

Sorry I didn't get to this post sooner---- the test is really no big deal, but I'm sure you've found that out already. Hope all goes well for your takedown.

thank you!! all went well with one minor exception. My cell phone went swimming, while I was getting dressed after the test. I had a scrub top on, and when I went to put it on, it fell out of the pocket into the toilet. <G> It worked sorta on friday, and did work on saturday, but sunday I could call out, but no one could hear me. So I got a new phone today.

Too bad about the phone, but at least you've got one funny story!

Glad it went ok, did they say when you will have your reversal?

I got a call from the surgeon who ordered the test today, but I'm not going to have him do the reversal. I've got to call and talk to the one who I want to do the reversal, about insurance problems. i'm going to call back the first one tomorrow and let him know, I've changed my mind about him doing it.

I went to get a new phone monday, well my contract isn't up until June, so I would have had to pay for a new one, or get a replacement for the one I had, for $50, the insurance deductible. I ended up renewing my dad's contract, and taking the new phone, and promising him, i'll renew my contract in June, and he can get a new phone then.
