Upper GI test
I'm having this done next week and I'm just curious if anyone has had this? I don't know anyone who has ever had this. I have to take a contrast(I've read it's usually barium) and sit in front of an X-ray and lay down on the X-ray table.
just curious as to what to expect!

One day at a time.
I have had the test done several times when I was having swallowing issues with my lap-band. The stuff you drink is disgusting... and then they strap you to a table that turns you practically upside down while they take X-rays. I can certainly think of better ways to spend an afternoon, but it's not the worst thing. Have fun!

I had it done in Singapore in 2005 when RNY wasn't really a thing there.
I was asked if students could watch and I agreed, expecting like, three or four - enter 30ish young men and women to stand and watch me being moved around like I was on a fairground ride.
I was quite the sideshow
