Chastity and First church lady,
THANK YOU SO MUCH! I will ask my surgeon on Monday, then also speak with the radiology doc (luckily the docs I have now all work together and communication amongst everyone is viewed as totally good), so hopefully my follow-through will be just like yours. I have a barium allergy, but they could I'm sure have me drink something else.
So in addition to no balloon in behind the stoma, you also had no issue with the barium hardening in the small intestine?
I didn't think that would be an issue as everything stays pretty liquidy there anyway, but that was my other question for those of you who take this test with barium. Glad it was no issue for the two of you. Thanks so much.
P.S. Seems real odd that a current radiology text book would print something so untrue, but that is why I will ask the docs as I am not one. But this book actually said it...very odd indeed. Thanks so much for your feedback, now I feel more like maybe I could have this test and hopefully rule out this concern. Yeah!
