Re: Gastric Emptying Scan ...QUEStionS?

You can call them today and see if you can have something else. I ate a bowl of oatmeal, a piece of toast, and a glass of water. They tell you to eat as much as you can in a short amount of time, if you cant get it all in then its ok. I cant stand eggs so i opted out of those. Give them a call at the place you are having the scan done, you may need to bring something with you. Also Zofran shouldnt affect you emptying so ask them about that as well.
