Oh Joy, Another CT Scan in the Morning
March 7, 2018 10:05pm CST
Tomorrow morning I have to get a CT scan at the local hospital. I have to drink 32 ounces of water beforehand, which I have never heard of doing with a CT scan, and I've had plenty of them over the years. The CT scan itself is no big deal, but I'm not looking forward to chugging all that water. The only time I've ever had to do that was for pelvic ultrasounds. The CT scan is to check for a hernia recurrence, so I'm confused about the need to drink all that water. Have any of you ever heard of having to drink a ton of water before a CT scan?

Hi! I am sorry to hear that. Hoping that everything will be okay. I think that water is important because you might experience dehydration while inside the CT scanner. My dad just had his surgery yesterday due to hernia too. All is okay and praying that all is fine.
