Hello I just got back from my ct scan today and the only thing the radiologists said to me was did i have any more tests done anywhere else i of course told them no and proceded to ask why? They said i still had barium in me from my ct scan a week ago. I just wondered if anyone could tell me if thats normal to still have that stuff in me from a week ago?

It does seem a bit long. Have you been constipated since the barium study was done? I recall them telling me to drink a lot and consume a lot of fiber to get it all passed through, and seem to recall saying it should be all out within a few days (and it can change your stools to a chalky color as well).

What are the symptoms that led to this study being done? This finding might help them come up with a cause.

That does seem like a long time, but how many people have a ct scan done so close together to really know is my first thought. Did you drink more water to flush it through faster?
