barium blues!

Ok, there has to be another way! This stuff is SOOOO nasty!! Well, girls, it's been 1 year and a couple of months (since my hyst) and things are acting up again. So, I'm gagging this stuff down again, in preparation of another CT. If it tasted like pina colada, it might be so bad! Well, wish me luck and CHEERS to anyone else that can relate to the barium blues!

Good luck to both of you. Here's hoping for crystal clear cat scans.

barium bruises!

Ok girls! I survived the test. Though I am "toting" new bruises. They blew out 2 veins and it only took 8 pokes, even one in my foot. They make you drink yucky stuff, then they stick you a bunch of times, then they charge you $1000+. It just doesn't seem right!

barium blues!

Well I survived but it wasn't nice. LOL. I said I went thru major surgery and 9 months of chemo without any problems BUT the barium made me so sick!! I was whipped all night, couldn't even make supper for my husband. I slept all eveing!! Oh well today I feel better. The tech that did my original CT Scan when they found the cancer was the same one that did it yesterday. I told him he better get it right this time! The PET Scan I had 3 weeks ago was clear of any neoplastic processes so I am unsure why she wanted a CT Scan also. Be well.
