Oh, by the way. The barium enema is in the hospital. I have to go on a liquid diet for 2 days. They then put barium into my colon through my rectum and take a bunch of xrays to try to see my colon better. I think they also try to insert a smaller, thinner scope to see as far as they can.
I know. I wish I woud have asked him to explain better. Usually they send a detaied summary in my online MyChart that I can read and understand better. But there is no notes or after visit summary for my colonostomy nor after the consult. I've had bowel issues since I was a little girl and we've done diet changes, pills, powders, on & on. It's just something I have learned to live with. But by never having a colonostomy or seeing a gastroentologist, the things he is telling me I don't understand. Up to now, I've just been told, your bloodwork is fine, there's nothing to be concerned about. Take Miralax and Colace when constipated and a probiotic may help, you'll just have to try and see. Take anti-diarrheaheal when you have diarrhea. Soooo, that's what I've been doing.Til now.
