Barium swallow

Postby animeemo3 » Fri Jun 28, 2013 6:08 pm

well, i had my barium swallow a few days ago (to see why food always gets stuck in my throat, no matter what) and it was a bit confusing to be honest. the liquid tests showed there was nothing visibly wrong, but when it was moved to a marshmallow-type substance, lo and behold, it was stuck! i said to the lady that was watching the xray screen "its there, its stuck" she said yes, i can see it, its still there. it was stuck there for five minutes until i had to get a glass of water to push it down because it was hurting. not sure what this means, but apparently i have to go back to my gp in a week, to discuss further? :S anybody else had/have this?

I am glad that something showed up so they believe you. Keep us informed on what GP has to say.

Expect the worst in life you won't be disapointed and you'll be prepared!
