CT scan

So I arrive to my ct scan already very sick to my stomach (nerves and hunger/thirst) sit down and they hand me three bottles and tell me I need to drink one every 20 minutes. I already felt defeated. I don't normally drink this much in a day. It tasted like crap and made me gag. After an hour I had 1.5 down and couldn't get anymore I was going to barf so I stopped they ran the scan anyways but was it useless because I didn't drink enough?
I still feel like hell over 12 hours later.
Also I didn't get a choice of flavors mine tasted like nasty cough medicne. Everyone else got a choice. I was such a hot mess and crying I'm sure the nurse was making fun of me.

I'm so sorry you had such a bad experience.

I would lodge a formal complaint over your treatment, it may not get you anywhere but sometimes you feel better if you've at least complained.

Sorry it didn't go well but 1.5 may be enough. I know once they wanted me to drink 3 for an MRI and I couldn't go past 2 and it was fine.

I didn't drink all of the nasty drink for my CT scan and it was fine.

It sucks, I am sorry you didn't get any resolution. I had the opposite my CT scan showed strictures but my colonoscopy was clear. Living in pain is horrid. I talked to my GP and said pain meds are a bandage not a solution. I just hope you get answers

I hope the colonoscopy gives you some answers; it was the other way around for me too.

I got through 90% of the disgusting drink, but it was a big struggle and I wasn't feeling sick or anything. I think they must give you more than is necessary knowing most people won't manage it.
