Dear Collette The defecogram is an awful test but a very important one.Here in Australia they will only allow female nurse and radiologists in the room when this is done.Also you are behind a screen so noone can see you.It is all very discreet.It not only shows prolapses but also checks that there is peristaltic action going on in the colon.If there is no action then it usually means that you have either a lazy bowel or it is not working at all and this could be an indication of bowel blockages.A lot of these tests are definitely not very pleasant but I for one was only too happy to recieve these so I could make sure that the right decisions were made.Love always Robyne.
