*In case you don't know what an upper GI is, it involves the patient ingesting barium either by swallowing it or having it injected through a feeding tube. The radiologist does a series of x-rays as the barium goes down & moves through the digestive tract. It can help detect a lot of different conditions like structural abnormalities, growths, hiatal hernias, reflux, etc.*
Anyway, the radiologist said that he could see some inflammation in her small bowel where the tube is, and that the inflammation is probably what's causing the bile to back up in her stomach. What we will be doing to fix that I have no idea. The radiologist was going to send his report to her GI doctor and we'll go from there.
|Girlfrien' was happy as could be BEFORE the upper GI :)|

|She pouted all the way home though. Who could blame her, right?|
