diarrhea after Barium drink / contrast ?

Edited , 5 users are following.

So I had a CT scan done yesterday.. had to drink 2 bottles of Barium and had the IV contrast...

this morning I wake up and had some diarrhea ... light yellow colored.. I'm assuming that's a side effect of drinking that gross stuff...
