well other then hospital overscheduling delaying it forever and some blood sugar issues... but that wasn't the test itself..

it wasn't comfy, but it isn't too bad.. the biggest thing anyone told me and it worked- go see a therapeutic masseuse afterwards and tell them what was done, they will massage your tummy... it will help get the gook out faster.. and I had other issues, but I think that was more the sigmoioscopy I had done BEFORE the BE- talk about discomfort and it backfilled me with gas that took a few days to fully release...

The only other thing I remember (this was like 5 years ago) was that I got a bit dizzy when they kept tipping and tilting the table I was laying on... making the barium coat the right spots.
