Re: Barium enema

You had a colonoscopy? Why the need for a barium enema after having the scope?

I found it degrading and painful, but I had 15 inches of inflamed colon from the rectum up. The girl who did it didn't think I should be in pain..I offered her to change places..grrr.

It didn't show anything regarding the inflammation. Eventually I was sent to a GI who diagnosed me with Ulcerative Colitis.

You don't have to be out for it and after it's done, they'll require you to sit on the toilet to hopefully pass much of the barium. I think I almost exploded the toilet..lol.

Personally, I'd rather have a c-scope...
Let us know how it goes.
