Hi there, I just finished a test that involved a barium enema yesterday. I was warned that I would need to drink a lot of water because the barium tends to constipate most people. Well, lo and behold, I am apparently not most people because it gave me diarrhea, which I have been dealing with since last night. I am IBS-D, but I still didn't expect this bad of a reaction. I am also experiencing painful flatulence (sorry for the TMI) and my stools are still white. Has anyone had this test and had a similar side effect afterwards? I'm just worried that these symptoms will stay for longer than I expected. Any information would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
