Entry for April 09, 2008

All of the medical and clerical experts finished arguing. The CT scan was today (Wednesday) at 11:00 a.m. Obviously, CT scans are painless. For gastroenterology, modern medicine uses an old-fashioned torture to make up for that convenience, barium. Three hours before the test, you have to drink about a half-liter solution of this vile glop. One hour before the test, you again have to drink the vile glop. When you arrive for the test, you fill out the customary redundant papers, and then you drink even more of the vile glop. No matter what flavors they use to disguise it, vile glop will always taste like vile glop. Halfway through the test, they I.V. you with radioactive iodine for more image contrast. You go back home feeling like human hazardous waste. Then you wait for the technicians and the physicians to all review the images, and then to call you, or not.
