Best wishes, Kelly!  Have you had this done before?   In case you haven't, be forewarned that the IV contrast will give you a bad taste in your mouth and make your genitals feel very hot.   You may have the sensation of wetting your pants.  Those feelings only last a short time.   The only after-effects for me are trips to the bathroom throughout the day. 

I hope your test results are good!

Thanks for the warning. My son will be doing the test. He is a Radiologic Technoligist. I was growling about having to drink the stuff and said don't growl you have to drink another when you get there.  :o

I just did my dye thing and CT scan a bit more than a week ago.  Waiting to talk to the cancer surgeon on Wednesday am.  Wishing you good luck with your test and results.

Good luck Kelly!  I know that I too had the heat flushing too and it was different that's for sure! ;)

  I hope all goes well tomorrow. Cheryl is right. there was a weird tast in my mouth and a strange sensation in my bladder
 region when I had IV dye 2 years ago.
I will keep you in my prayers.

Yes- it is a weird feeling! I have had so many of these.  Is this for the stomach condition?? Hopefully you will find an answer.
