What you are having done is called a pouchoscopy. It's a contrast xray done to ensure your pouch has no leaks so the surgeon can go ahead and schedule the reversal surgery. They will fill your pouch with contrast fluid and then you will have several xrays taken while lying on a table. It's really no big deal. However, take extra ostomy supplies in the event that your ostomy springs a leak. Some of the contrast does end up going in the bag, as I recall.
