barium sulfate

help! i am having a ct scan in the morning i have to drink 2 bottles of barium sulfate, one tonight and one tomarrow. the one tonight i am gettting through because i can have other stuff with it, but tomarrows i can only have water. anyone have any tips on how to get through it? i dont think just chugging will help, but maybe a shot glass and gulp water between my shots?

  • I kow this sounds weird but I have gastroparesis, and have been through these many times and my friend who likes to take shots of liquor wanted me to do one and I don't like whiskey so he said take a sip of juice keep it in ur mouth and shoot the whiskey and hold ur breath and swallow. Well yoou can try it with water a shot glass and that yuky stuff!! Good luck to you sweetie!!!

  • I drank a couple ounces of the barium then took a sip of water, just continued that pattern until I had drunk it all.
