Re: Day 18 of no poop and starting to get antsy

Be extra careful with barium tests if your kid is prone to constipation. Something they didn't tell us and should have is that barium can be harder to pass for some kids and it is recommended to take laxatives for several days afterwards if your child is prone to constipation. Once the barium hardens up inside the intestines it is much more difficult to pass.

Just speaking from experience my child was confirmed by x-ray that 5 weeks later the barium had balled up and was still in his lower intestines. DS's GI refuses to order any more barium tests, now he has to be put through CT contrast scans if he need GI testing.
