IVP question

I am going for an IVP tomorrow. My question in that I have packing at the vaginal cuff will that do anything to the test? My GN ordered the test to rule out fistula but dicided not to take out the packing because he said that it was doing its job.

thanks for you help

IVP question


Sorry to hear you need an IVP and that you're still having problems.

I had an IVP prior to my hyst, so I know it's not the same situtation that you're in; but here's my experience.

An IV line was started and the radiologist took some abdominal films. Then they added some contrast material and took a couple more films. At *I think* 10 minute increments, the xrays machine arm moved slightly to catch/take films at different angels. This went on for about 30 - 40 minutes. After all the films were taken, I had to wait to make sure they came out, and then I was discharged.

The reason I had the IVP was to make sure the ureters weren't blocked or adhesed to anything....just as a precautionary measure my GYN wanted prior to surgery. It was NOT painful at all, just the little sting of the IV needle and the yucky metalic taste as the contrast medium was injected.

I wish you the best of luck, and hope that everything turns out a-okay for you for your test. Please let us know the results!

Love & Hugs
