Hi All,

I had my Upper GI done just last week and wanted to talk about the experience to see if anyone else has had something similar happen.

When I drank the barium Fluid, it sat like a brick in my stomach and we had trouble getting the stuff to move to the small intestine for all the pictures they needed. The test took about an hour and a half because I spent so much time walking around, trying to get the juice going. It made me feel sweaty and dizzy and nauseous. When they finally got what they needed, I drove the 20 minutes home and vomited it all up again. I felt awful for two days, but only threw up once.

Has this happened to anyone else? Is this a common thing?

Post surgery - Do I have to do this test again? I shudder to think...

Any input would be great, thank you!

@INEEDABUDDY No hernia, the results came out all good. But my system did NOT like that drink. Jealous of your 20 minute test, ha ha...
