Barium milkshakes….yum!

Ok, I am totally kidding about the yum part but that will be how I start my day on Wednesday! I can hardly contain my excitement…LOL. I went to see my gastroenterologist this morning about my continuing abdominal pain so she thought that it would be good to go ahead and have an abdominal/pelvic CT scan Wednesday morning just to make sure that everything is where it is suppose to be and that there is nothing there that shouldn’t be there. She also ordered some bloodwork this morning so after the nurse tried sticking me three or four different times, we were able to send of labwork to check for inflammation markers that may signal something going on. So while I’m hoping we find something to have some answers, I just wish there was another way to check w/o having to drink barium. I was trying to reassure myself on the drive back to work that I will be able to chase it with some sprite or something but then it dawned on me that I won’t be able to have anything to eat or drink that morning besides the barium. So here’s hoping that I can keep it down! If anyone has any tips please let me know 🙂

I love hearing from you!
