  • Te99m Sulfur Colloid / Gastric Emptying Study

    My doctor wants me to get a gastric emptying study to diagnose Gastroparesis. I am told I would be given 1mci dose of Te99m Sulfur Colloid. The technicians and doctor have given me mixed instructions in regards to breastfeeding my 6 month old. From 24 hours to 48 hours of no breastfeeding to 6 hour of no contact with baby to be able to hold him right away.

    He does not take a bottle well and is very clingy and spends a lot of time in a baby sling. We also (safely) co sleep.

    What are the proper precautions?

    Thank you.
