 Transit time study questions.

I need some advice. I have had severe constipation for the last seven
months. I am 31 and male. I have had a barium{*filter*} which was normal
as well as {*filter*}work. Not anemic and no thyroid problems. Just the
other day I had a transit study done. I took a capsule with some white
round things in them. I took it on a Wednesday and was supposed to get
the x-ray on a Saturday but the nurse forgot to turn the orders in. So
I did not have the x-ray until Monday at noon. I called for my results
and the nurse said the doctor wanted me to take it again and that I
still had several of those markers high in my colon. This scared me.

For the last 6 or 7 years I have had a pain in my left upper abdomen
just below my ribcage. It was not a constant pain and only a few times
would hurt during the night. I could feel it throbbing. Sometimes when
it hurt I could press on or twist my body and it would shoot mild pain
up my chest. The doctor did a ct scan 3 years ago with contrast which
showed nothing. Actually since that test it has not bothered me as
much.

Now because of the transit study when she said it was up high I
wondered if there was something up there blocking stuff from coming
through and that maybe that was what was causing my pain before. But
wouldnt the barium{*filter*} cause catch that?

Does anyone know how many markers are in one of those capsules? Two
days after taking the pill I know I passed 10 of them. (Dont ask how I
know).

Any advice would be appreciated.
