Hello Had a tummy scan and had to drink that yummy barium. I am ibsc so i haven't seen the barium actually leave me body yet. I take zelnorm and miralax so i am not quite as constipated as i used to be. Will all of the sudden i see signs that it has left?Thanks,Jean

The first CT scan I had, I drank a full liter of barium and I actually didn't notice much difference in my stool color. It was lighter, but not to the point where I would have noticed had I not just had the CT.I had an unplanned CT back in October because I went to the ER with several abdominal pain. I didn't drink all of the barium because I was having trouble swallowing. I was pretty sick that week, but I remember not passing much stool for a couple of days, so I suppose the barium was in there for a bit...I honestly don't remember how long it was or any color changes because I was sick the rest of that week as well.

if you work at a nuclear plant you will know when you stop setting off all the alarms....(from 50 feet away)i think it takes about a week before you can get back on site without alarming
