I'm not looking forward to my CT Scan with contrast on Friday. Doc can't "guess" what might be causing the pain in my lower left side. She first thought kidney stones - not. Sure glad I have you ladies to talk to. As I drink my barium stuff - I'll toast you all. Love Deb

Good luck Deb, isn't that stuff great? I have had the contrast ct scan 4 times now and that drink just does not get any better!! Let us know once you get your results back, the waiting is a pain in the behind, but take heart, everything will be fine.Positive attitude!!!!

Thanks - Actually it didn't taste as bad as I remembered it. This time I used two straws. Have to tell what I asked the nurse when I picked up the stuff. With a straight face I said, " I can mix this with vodka right" He said sure and thought I was joking. So I said - "that's good" Then he back tracked and said I'm not sure. Another nurse asked and told me that I should drink the vodka first. I then fessed up and told them I don't drink. But I am having a Pepsi chaser. Love Deb

Good luck tomorrow Deb. We'll all be praying for you. I'm supposed to have my revision of my reconstruction Fri.,but I have a cold so may have to postpone. Will find out in the AM. Good luck! Cathy

I'm interested in how your appointment turns out. I'm not sure if I want to go through the process. My doctors wanted me to wait on reconstruction. I had a breast reduction 6 years ago and then the ultimate reduction on the left side last January. Worried about blood supply or something. Hope you are feeling better. Love Deb
