I've drunk way more than my share of contrast, but I checked and only had gastrografin once. I didn't notice any effect on output. I have a colostomy, however, so "Your results may vary." Good luck. You have my best wishes for remission.

I've had my ileostomy for 27 years and have had lots of tests. Any time I had to drink any kind of contrast liquid, it went through me pretty fast. I learned quickly to remind the technicians that I have an ileostomy and they won't have much time to do the test if they want the contrast liquid to still be inside me, lol. I'm not sure if I've had that specific one but I'm sure it would have a similar outcome. Good luck with everything! Sending lots of prayers your way!

I did call back and spoke directly to the CT tech who informed me that they do this with many ileostomy people but stated there are 2 drinks 1 night before and 1 1hr prior to the procedure and seeing I have no large bowel not to drink 1st only do the 2nd drink....will do follow up afterwards.... Thank you for the prayers and positive vibes in advance.....much appreciated.

Hi momma

I don't remember anything out of the ordinary other than the feeling of wetting yourself, you'll see .. and I hope you get everything you deserve.
