Modified Versus Standard Barium Swallow/Wrong test given?

I am not sure why my doctor requested a standard barium swallow when I was having no trouble with liquids. I am not sure if it was a waste or time or not...everything came back alright with my swallowing so they said there was nothing wrong with me functionally swallowing..but I am still having trouble with solids... If I had thought about it, I would have requested the modified barium swallow at the time. Now I am wondering if I should request one of those to put my mind at ease... I am not sure why the doc did the standard barium swallow when I made it apparent to everyone it was only trouble with solids
