barium emptying too slow

Recommended Posts

Just wondering if anyone has experienced the barium emptying too slow from esophagas via floro

If so, what causes this?

I do not have any reflux or burning ...... jst slow emptying resulting in no fill #3.

Advised to take pepto to sooth the esophagas and revisit next month.

thank you for your help.

The speed of the barium going thru the band is how they determine if you have good restriction or not. If yours is emptying too slow you may have a little too much restriction, for which my doctor would have removed a little bit. If it is just that you think it is emptying too slow and are upset that you did not get a fill then you probably have a perfect amount of restriction for right now. Just continue to work the band and he weight will come off. Slow and steady wins the race!
