Re: [IP] Gastic emptying timed test

I have had this test done. It is not hard at all. Though you will be at the
hospital pretty much all day!
They have eat they have you eat scrambled eggs and orange juice when you get
there that has a radioactive dye in it. Then they have you stand up to the
x-ray machine and x-ray both front and back to see whole stomache. They do
this several times over a period of several hours. Then they tally up the
toals and average it out so that they can tell how fast your stomache is
Completely painless, though boring!


Yesterday is in the past...
Tomorrow has yet to come...
Today is a gift, that is why we call it...THE PRESENT!
