They can show blockages, however when I had my partial blockages due to adhesions in the past the blockages did not show on any of their tests. It is worth a try though, plus they can show many other things beside blockages. My ulcer & hiatal hernia didn't show up on the upper GI in the past either...they found them putting the scope down my throat. Guess my body just doesn't cooperate with x-rays (haha). Wonders me if they will show up now after all these years!?! I wish I knew what I was looking at cause when I was put in certain positions I could see the monitor but have no idea what I was looking at!! I said to the doctor "oh goody, I get to watch TV!" and he said "yup, but we don't have cable"(haha).

I will know the results after I go to the doctor March 19th. I will be picking them up before that but I don't know what I'm looking at anyway.

The upper GI isn't is the stuff up the butt I can't handle. I can't handle a BM let alone hoses or tubes. JEAN (from PA)
