:Hi Laura,
I had a barium enema about 11 years ago -- I'm assuming it's still done the same way. The day before, you are basically on an all liquid diet -- you have to drink this discusting stuff at the end of the day and I also had to give myself a suppository. Then you go in the next day, they stick a scope up you w/ a balloon type thing and they fill you up with barium until you can no longer handle any more pressure. Then they roll you into several positions and take x-rays. Afterwards you have to shoot to the bathroom (which is usually in the same room that you have the procedure) b/c, believe me, you will have to go!! A lot of people did not have great feelings about this procedure (ask Angie E.-- she'll tell you all about it! :o) I myself didn't think it was that bad. It's a little humiliating, but I thought it was worth it. After the barium, I didn't have bowel problems for months! It was great. Unfortunately, they did come back -- but that time off was wonderful! Good luck to you and don't worry about it so much!! SMILE TK
