| | Ct Scan For Abdominal/Bowel Problems
I was recently diagnosed with an intestinal disorder called Celiac Disease, and have been having many complications as a result. Now I may have to undergo a CT scan, which will require an injection of iodine thru IV. I'm terribly nervous about this due to just having had an allergic reaction to Morphine recently, and knowing how scary that felt I don't want another allergic reaction! Because I'm an allergy prone person, I'm afraid of how the iodone will feel going in. Has anyone here ever had a contrast agent injection, and if so what's it like? What sensations are normal and what aren't? And what exactly would a CT ab scan show?
