Hi, I read online: "Rectal CT Contrast" it says, "After the exam is complete, the rectal contrast will be drained and the patient may go to the bathroom."
For my CT Scan in India, I had IV contrast (with water I think) put into my anus through an enema. However I was not told to prepare for this by fasting, so I almost vomited.
What is meant by, "the rectal contrast will be drained?" What happens here and how is it drained? Once my CT scan was over, I went straight to the toilet. I had no draining process, is this ok?
Is it normal to have the IV contrast giving by an enema into the anus?
