Abdominal Cramping Post Ct Scan With Barium
Posted 23 July 2011 - 06:59 AM
Because I'm prone to severe C, I did about 1/2 of a mild enema when I got home. My colon moves slowly, to say the least. No way I wanted a toxic heavy metal (the Barium) just sitting in there...
So, I had a bout of D after the enema - what looked like white paint appeared in the commode. I'm assuming that was (some of) the Barium.
How do I know if it's all gone? Why am I still having abdominal cramping? I had the test yesterday morning. Are the cramps normal? If so, does anyone know how long they last?
Thanks for any & all help!

It sounds like you got the non-gluten free form of contrast and it will likely take you the same amount of time to be symptom free as it would any time you have been glutened.

I'm drinking tons of water, but not passing stool since yesterday afternoons D episode.
I took the Berry Smoothie Redi-Cat 2. Yeah, maybe it wasn't gluten free. Whomever I spoke to in the Imaging scheduling department did tell me "of course it's gluten free" - now that I think about it, she probably had no clue.
I'll wait it out - what else can I do - and yes, if I'm not better by the time the doc calls with my results, I'll discuss it with her.
