How Long Does It Take To Do A Barium Swallow Test???

my hubby just went to the doc and he thinks there is a problem. His hida scan showed it took 75 minutes for the gallbladder to start to empty into his duedonum (sorry for the spelling). the doc says that is a problem that its way too long and thinks there is a narrowing or a stone in his bile duct. He said there may be a stricture in his esophogus. I just wondered how long it takes for the test or does it depend on the person. Sounds like he may need surgery to fix whatever is wrong. I was just happy the doc decided to figure out what is wrong and he referred him to a gastro. Ever since they tried to do the stretta procedure on him his stomach has been messed up.

Re: How Long Does It Take To Do A Barium Swallow Test???

As I recall when I had this procedure last year they told me to expect it to take 2 hours, but I was done in one hour as the barium material moved right through me, so it is an individual thing. In your husbands case, where they're only looking at the area of the esophagus I wouldn't expect it to take very long.

So they think something in the esophagus may be pressing against the billiary duct?
