I must admit when they put the tube in and the barium in it does feel a bit funny then they pump air into you and thats a wierd feeling too but not painful at all I didnt need to go to the toilet when they did that because I was well and truly cleaned out they said that I had the cleanest bowel they had seen in a long time..LOL (sorry to gross you) when I drank the white stuff I felt a bit sick but werent too bad, and so far since having it I'm enjoying having something to eat and chilling.. cheers guys

NZChickee, I have one scheduled for Thursday morning and I'm scared to death. I think I'm more scared of the results than the test itself. Can you tell me what symptoms you were having and how long did the test take? Thanks! Margg

Colonoscopy is so much easier in my opinion...The prep for either test tho is the worst part for me....Seems like most of you are women...I've been living with this Syndrome for over 20 years and it sucks...
