    I am scheduled for gallbladder surg.on fri. and Upper GI & small bow. follow thru on THurs.(yes tomorrow). Is this going to complicate my surgery with constipation from barium? Not sure I shud do the testing. My surgeon is going away on Jan 2-12 and i am desparate for the surgery. Have lost 15 lbs. He wants to check for obstructions.Any comments welcomed. I know this is a difficult question.

    I don't think it would cause a problem. Ususally if the test is early you can drink enough liquids to flush your system out. If you are concerned I'd call the surgeon and see what he thinks. I had my gall bladder out 4 years ago I also worked on the surgery floor at a local hospital and seen tests done the day before and surgery the day after. So in my opinion I don't see a problem. But like I said, if in doubt call the physician.
    Good Luck and take it easy PS.. the more you walk after surgery the faster you recover. Take it slow.
