Barium enema
Apr 1, 2008
... Not painful, just uncomfortable. they put the barium in your bottom and then you are on this table that they move around, up and around. All you really feel is pressure. BUT...................you better drink a lot of water afterwards, cause that white barium can get hard and you can be constipated.....it looks like white poop when you go..........drink lots of water...

... e again. Well, I went to my dr appt today and she could not feel anything wrong with my stomach. She refered me to the radiological association to get a Barium Enema done. Okay, now I am scared! Is this painful and does this procedure tell alot about your colon? ... (5 replies)

... not pleasant but definately not painful. Just a little pressure and then it's all done. The yuckiest part is the enema that you have to do at home. ... (5 replies)

... I am with Sammi. I have had 2 and can't even remember them. Seconds after the IV starts and them I am awake and clue less. Maybe a Sigmogoscopy (sp) would be because those they just medicate you a little and you are still awke. Anyway, good luck (5 replies)
... Are they not sedating you for your colonoscopy? Most people say they don't have any pain. I'm finding the prep to be a big problem for me. (5 replies)
... Hi kathy, There is a solution, I had a " virtual colonoscopy" through a private clinic here in Calgary. it is expensive but completely non invasive. I think I paid $750.00 2 years ago. When you think what we pay for a root canal or a break job - it is well worth it! Let me know if you want any more info. Good luck. (5 replies)
... My physician's have made attempts to complete both of these procedures; however, were unable to complete them due to pain severity (I am assuming the gas to be causing the massive pain). Has anyone else encountered this problem and if so, are there alternative methods to receive a diagnosis? (5 replies)

... Glad to hear things are improving gradually. I remember when you first posted here as a newly diagnosed patient, mine was about 3 months prior to yours. I had my reversal on Dec 30, last chemo cycle (folfox) was on Oct 6. They did have me go through a CAT and PET (with CT) scan before my surgery to decide whether to remove the port or not and rule out any possible... (79 replies)
... If you're painful constipation continues, with no results from an enema or the drink, I would be more inclined to think you have a blockage, which could be caused by a polyp, if it's grown significantly, what about diverticulitis though? Is your abd pain on the left side? Left sided pain usually signals diverticulitis, this same thing just happened to a friend of mine, have... (3 replies)
... Meg: If you are talking about bowel movements, I would recommend using an oil based product to facillitate passage (use an empty enema bottle cleaned out)-- even occasional use of olive oil is ok... she will notice a BIG difference. BTW, Is it the anus that has tightened, or higher up. Also, if it's that painful, the colorectal surgeon should be giving her some meds... the... (9 replies)

Ribbon shaped BMs

... I reiterate Marimac's advice, a colonoscopy or sigmoidiscope is in order. The C'scope requires the nasty prep, an S'scope only an enema BUT an S'scope is painful and does not allow the doctor to see very far up the bowel while a c'scope includes sedatives and has never been painful for me. ...
