Re: Barium Swallow - What were your results?
I had an enhanced barrium upper gi series done. It showed total reflux wiht lower esophageal sphincter not working, and upper esophageal sphincter not working. It also showed hiatal hernia and gastritis.
It showed that I had no blockages, or strictures and no ulcers. It will not show the condition of the tisuses as well as a scope would, but it is alot less invasive. Since I had the enhanced barrium (they gaveme these little crystals mixed with water that fizzed after I drank it), it produced gas, and expanded my esophagus and stomach, so that the tissues can be examined.
