Has anyone here had a loopagram done before their takedown surgery? The way it was explained to me was that they run the a cathader/ camera down my loop ileo and fills the j-pouch up with contrast to see if there are any leaks. My surgeon said he doesn’t like using barium in case it does leak, he doesn’t want bariumleaking into my system. Anyway, I haven’t been able to find much info on the “loopagram”. While an idea of having an enema is never fun, the idea of running a camera into my stoma is mildly freaking me out. Seems like it might be a bit uncomfortable?
