I am having a pouchogram tomorrow morning. I was wondering if anyone could tell me what to expect. Thanks

Can you just drop your pouch for them to do the x-ray and pick it up later? That's what I would do.

Oh, It's a j-pouch.......sorry.......guess you can't do that.

Shouldn't be too bad. Although, for me, they used an enema tube that had a balloon to hold in the xray fluid. The balloon part hurt like a b***h.
The enema just felt weird. Seeing the xray on the TV was pretty cool though; the j-pouch is much bigger than I thought it would be.
