I dont think I had any blood, but I did have some pretty funny stools after mine. Was the blood red or black? I think I remember reading that if its red its usually not a big deal. Im sure someone who knows more will be along soon.

when the barium comes through it will be more whitey grey.  Black is normally blood from upper  regions.  Red blood is normally from a little hemorrhoid.  If you get any more see your doctor to put your mind at ease. best wishes and hope all is well for you.

Sometimes the barium becomes hard and scratches your hemorrhoids. :/
I was told to take an laxative after my barium so it will get out faster and not harden.

red suggests its "fresh"..near the bottom of the plumbing, most likely hemorrhoids but see the doc just to put your mind at ease and to be sure

Yeah it was red and i do suffer from hemorrhoid's so maybe's the barium has agrivated them, i'll keep an eye out incase it happen's again then go from there.
