I had to have CT scans every month for a year after an injury when I was 15, and I could never drink that crap the normal way. I puked twice before my mom had to force them to make into a kool-aid type drink that they gave me when I was in the ER the very first time so that I wouldn't puke it back up. They argued that they only do that for ER patients, but my mom told them that unless they wanted me there all day just puking up the regular stuff over and over, they better make an exception. In a magnificent display of timing, I barfed again. They made an exception pretty quick. Looking back now that I'm older, I'm 99% sure that barium liquid is the reason I can't swallow after giving oral without gagging. That stuff is basically the same as drinking a man's "stuff."
OP here - can't believe this got published! I kept the second nasty shake down and survived the scan, only to have cramps and diarrhea the whole rest of the day. I really know how to party on a Saturday, don't I? They did the scan because I've been having abdominal pain. Should have the results next week, hope it turns out to be nothing!
